CEO Susan Knoppow

High school counselors, what approach do you use to help your students craft application essays? Would you like some new time-saving techniques that can help you reach students who have difficulty with the college essay process (and make your job a little bit easier)?


Wow CEO Susan Knoppow will join the Pennsylvania Association for College Admission Counseling (PACAC)  next Wednesday, February 8th, to present:  “I’m 17 – and I’m Not Hemingway! A Realistic Approach to College Essays,” an online professional development workshop for Secondary School Counselors.

The workshop is for high school counselors and independent educational consultants throughout the U.S. who want  resources for students and colleagues. Pennsylvania counselors can get a ertificate of Attendance to submit for ACT 48 credit through your district/IU.
