Colleges That Change Lives, an organization dedicated to the advancement and support of a student-centered college search process, has selected Nanette Tarbouni as a 2015 Counselor That Changes Lives. Tarbouni, director of college counseling at Burroughs, is one of eight counselors recognized. They represent schools mostly in the U.S., but one comes from Greece.
Tarbouni is quick to give credit to the team that supports its advisees in the search for colleges and universities that meet each student's academic, social, emotional, financial and geographic needs. "The entire team — not just the assigned college counselor, but all of us — is involved as students begin and continue through the application process," says Tarbouni. "When a student chooses a college ... that's his/her happiness, but I think for the college counselors, true happiness is after they go off to college and return to JBS. They tell us how well prepared they are because of the great education they received at JBS."
