Dr. Ray Adomaitis, assistant professor of counseling in Trinity’s School of Education, received the C. Harold McCully Award for “outstanding service as a counselor educator” at a ceremony during the District of Columbia Counseling Association’s Annual Conference at Gallaudet University on March 7, 2009. At the same conference, students enrolled in Trinity’s counseling program made outstanding presentations.
According to Adomaitis, who is chair of Trinity’s counseling program, “Individually and collectively, six of our current practicum and internship students not only represented Trinity’s program with distinction, but stepped up personally to demonstrate for counselors of all specialties in attendance their love for learning, their dedication to counseling and the helping profession, and their commitment to the children and families of D.C. and beyond the beltway. In numbers alone our students and program graduates overwhelmed other university programs in our area and, most importantly, they were a genuine inspiration to me and to many other young and seasoned counselors.” The six Trinity students who made presentations at the conference were Keisha Branch, Renita Jackson, Caprice Lewis, Kenneth Rogers, Teia Smith-Funderburk and Angela Steele
In announcing the award, President McGuire congratulated the students, Dr. Ray Adomaitis, and Dr. Cynthia Greer, associate professor of counseling, and all of the School of Education faculty who have worked with our students to ensure this great success.
