TCA Annual Conference

Rachael C. Marshall, PhD Candidate in Counselor Education, was given the 2017 Tennessee Association for Counselor Education and Supervision (TACES) Outstanding Doctoral Student Award at the Tennessee Counseling Association Annual Conference in Nashville, TN last month.

“I am honored by this award. Our department faculty helps us feel proud of our accomplishments. We all work so hard in our programs and it is nice when that work is acknowledged.”

This TACES award recognizes doctoral students who exceed the already typically high demands of doctoral work in a Tennessee counselor education program. Recipients have demonstrated excellence in scholarship, teaching, supervision, clinical work, service, program development, leadership, and/or advocacy for disadvantaged students, clients, or the counseling profession.

Marshall also said, “No work is done alone and I have many amazing supporting people in my life. I greatly appreciate all that.”

TACES is a branch of the American Counseling Association (ACA) and a division of the Tennessee Counseling Association (TCA). Its purpose is to foster the development of counselor education and supervision in the state, as well as providing an organization for members to exchange ideas, seek solutions, stimulate professional growth, and improve standards of professional services.
