Super Counselor: Dana Lambert, Counselor at West Milford Township High School in West Milford, N.J.
Nominator: Edie Rinaldi, parent of a student
“Dana Lambert gives 150 percent of herself at all times,” says Edie Rinaldi, parent of a child at West Milford Township High School. “She is an incredible asset to the guidance department, child study team, and especially to the students and parents she is responsible for.”
As an adviser to not only students, but also their families, Lambert coordinates and is in charge of Junior Night for Parents, a night she devotes to offering advice and college application guidance to parents of upcoming high school seniors.
“Dana sat with us for over an hour discussing the pros and cons of our college [choices]. She has great knowledge under her belt,” Rinaldi says.
Lambert also helps students. She is the SAT/ACT Coordinator and Consultant of West Milford Township High School and is the sole coordinator of College On-Site Decision Day, during which students can apply for college admission without leaving their high school campus.
