Brown Nominated to Serve on Texas A&M Very Important Counselor Advisory Council

Brown receives VIC Award

Two years ago in April, Keisha Brown, K-12 College Readiness Coordinator for Little Elm ISD, was honored with the Very Important Counselor Award at Texas A&M University. As a result for receiving this award, Brown was recently nominated to serve on the Very Important Counselor Advisory Council. 

"In my role, it is important for me to develop and nurture great relationships with the colleges and university surrounding our District. As a council member, this will allow me to strengthen the one we have with Texas A&M that we started two years ago. I am honored to serve in this capacity," said Brown.

Brown received her letter last week explaining her purpose and duties as a council member. "The advisory council will provide valuable input into Texas A&M University's recruitment and outreach practices in order to assist the university to reach its goals," the letter states.

Each year in December, the Office of Admissions opens the nomination process for a month to receive nominations for future position openings. The Admissions staff nominates and selects people who are VIC's from Dallas-Forth Worth, Houston, Central Texas, the Rio Grande Valley, San Antonio, Laredo/Corpus Christi, and other counselors from out-of-state to serve on the council. "Basically, the council will offer feedback on admission practices, recruitment, and the way colleges evaluate students. We will all come together, as the voices for high school students in Texas, to influence university admission processes at Texas A&M," said Brown. "This is a win-win for Little Elm students, because they will be represented on this council over the next two years."
