Niagara University announces Dr. Roselind Gullo Bogner, associate professor of school counseling, is receiving the career achievement award from the New York State School Counselor Association. The award is being presented to Bogner at the Statewide Conference of the New York State School Counselor Association Friday, Oct. 28, in Rochester.
The award recognizes the school counselor or counselor educator whose contributions to his or her students, place of employment, colleagues and community have been substantial and ongoing. In addition, the recipient exhibits a commitment to professional school counseling and has a record of service to the profession.
Bogner joined the College of Education at Niagara University in 2003 after serving as a school counselor in the Lake Shore Central School District for more than 20 years. At Niagara, Bogner has been directly involved in teaching and supervising clinical practice in the master's degree and advanced certification programs in school counseling. She established a partnership with the National Transforming Schools initiative of the Education Trust that focused on expanding the role of school counselors to enhance the academic performance and achievement of students.
Recently, Bogner created a career and college preparation model for a summer camp at Niagara University. In doing so, she worked directly in areas related to the New York state reform agenda in bringing faculty, graduate candidates and middle school youths together to focus on career and college preparedness.
Bogner's commitment to serving the needs of the community continues to shape her work with graduate candidates in school and mental health counseling. As noted by one of her students, "Throughout my education, there have been numerous individuals who have left tracks on my career path, though none have been as influential as Dr. Bogner."
