2017 New Admissions Workshop Report


Jabez 2017 was an excellent professional development opportunity for new Admissions Counselors from across the state. It proved to be fun and highly informative. The participants were engaged and lively.

Over the course of two days we delivered 18 different session topics. These sessions covered a wide array of college admission materials. After analyzing the evaluations completed by the participants, we are proud to report that the reviews for the workshop were all between “Excellent” and “Very Good.” There was not one evaluation ranking the workshop below this rating.
