The Washington School Counselor Association honored state Rep. Marcie Maxwell with the Legislative Advocate of the Year Award for her “tireless advocacy” to improve public education.
As a member of the Joint Task Force on Education Funding and the Quality Education Council, Maxwell has advocated for additional middle and high school counselors and lower student-to-counselor ratios.
“School counselors ensure that kids are ready to learn, support schools and families through life challenges and guide pathways to college and careers,” she said in a statement. “Their work is important for student success.”
The Washington School Counselor Association represents the certificated professional school counselors who work in public and private schools.
Maxwell has served the 41st Legislative District since 2009. Her district includes the communities of Bellevue, Beaux Arts, Issaquah, Mercer Island, Newcastle, Renton and Sammamish.
