Charlotte Ijei Receives 'Counselor Advocate of the Year' Award

Parkway's Charlotte Ijei, pupil personnel and diversity director, will be honored with the Counselor Advocate of the Year award presented by the St. Louis Suburban School Counselor Association (SLSSCA).  Ijei will receive the award at the SLSSCA’s awards breakfast on December 3.

Ijei was nominated for the award by her peers because of her dedication and commitment to students, parents, counselors, social workers, teachers, administrators and the Parkway community.  For more than 20 years, she has been an exemplary leader for the Parkway community in the area of student support and advocacy.

Ijei has invested many years making sure issues related to diversity are achieved at all levels starting with the initiatives put forth from Diversity and Discipline Review Committee (DDCR).  Ijei started this program and has made continual, diligent and tireless efforts -- particularly with the Parkway Board of Education -- to make sure important diversity work continues in the district.  She implemented several successful diversity training programs directed to administrators, teachers, support staff and students such as: Honoring All Voices, Social Justice, and Internalized Oppression among others.
