Brewer earns College Access Coach designation
Fayetteville High School’s Andrea Brewer was recently awarded the designation of Certified College Access Coach from Lipscomb University for completing the College Access Project, an online, graduate-level course designed to combat the lack of college access mentoring skills among school counselors and other social service professionals who work with youth.
Brewer was awarded the College Access Coach certification after completing the 40-week course, developed and offered through Lipscomb’s Ayers Institute for Teacher Learning & Innovation. The course covered topics such as Creating a College-Going Culture, Ethics of College Access Counseling, College Admissions and Paying for College.
“Andrea’s determination to hone her skills and advance her understanding of the job are the primary reason our students are able to maximize the amount of money they are offered in scholarships, said FHS Principal Eric Jones.
“Our scholarship offers average well over $40,000 per student each year, and that is a direct result of Andrea’s hard work. She is an asset to our community, and I am proud to work with her.”
Brewer is the school counselor at Fayetteville High School. She holds an education specialist degree in administration and supervision and a master’s degree in school counseling.
