During the event, the association announced their choice for this year's Counselor Advocate of the Year as Katie Neubauer.

Neubauer is currently the Student Services Director for the Maryville R-II School District and was previously a School Psychologist for 12 years. 

Not only was the announcement of her being chosen as the Counselor Advocate of the Year, Neubauer's husband made a return trip home from France to attend the ceremony along with Neubauer's parents.

Neubauer says that keeping up with the times is one of the more difficult parts of her job. 

"Just learning the vast amount of information you need in order to do the job well and just keep advocating for students and staff as a priority," Neubauer said.

We had a few clouds around the area this morning and once we saw the sunshine we started to warm up. High temperatures today only reached into the lower 70s across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri.
