TWU’S ADAMS VOTED PRESIDENT-ELECT OF COUNSELING SOCIETY

Dr. Susan Adams, associate professor of counseling and development at Texas Woman’s University, recently was voted president-elect of the Texas Counseling Association.

The Texas Counseling Association provides leadership, advocacy and education to promote the growth and development of the counseling profession and those who are served.  With more than 6,000 members, TCA is the third-largest state branch of the American Counseling Association.

“Professional counselors have a strong organization in our state thanks to the vision and efforts of many,” Dr. Adams said.  “I look forward to building on that vision as we continue to provide excellent education opportunities, a strong advocacy voice in Austin and Washington and mentorship for our future leaders.”

Dr. Adams will serve as TCA’s president-elect through July 2010, president from 2010-2011 and past-president the following year.  She has been involved with the organization since 1997, and was named the 2008 Counselor Educator of the Year by the Texas Association for Counselor Education and Supervision (TACES), a division of the TCA.

NEWSBRIEFS

Information and news about activities, programs or TWU people may be sent to the Office of Marketing and Communication through campus mail or by e-mail to info@twu.edu. The deadline to receive information is the first and third Tuesday of each month at 5 p.m. for the following week. Student information for the “People” section is not published unless it is submitted by or in conjunction with a faculty member and that faculty member’s related activities.

The 2009-2010 faculty/staff parking permits for Denton and Dallas are now available for purchase.  The permits will be valid until Aug. 31, 2010.  To purchase a single permit online, go to www.twu.edu/dps/parking.asp.  Only one permit may be purchased online.  Forms for payment by check or through payroll deduction also may be downloaded from the site.

Caution: Many construction projects are in progress throughout the university at any given time.  As a reminder to all faculty, staff, and students, fenced areas surrounding construction sites are not to be entered by any persons other than the contractors working on the project.  Caution tape and temporary barriers are also used to ensure the safety of everyone, and the same applies for these areas as well.

Fitness and Recreation Center Name Clarified: Last week’s Lasso referred to the name of the new TWU Fitness and Recreation Center as the “Gym in the Woods.”  The new facility is named the TWU Fitness and Recreation Center.  “Gym in the Woods” is an internal nickname that has been used in referring to the center because of its location.  The Lasso has agreed to publish a correction in its next issue in August.
