WPIAL, Dunkin’ Announce High School Counselor of the Year Award

Tuesday, February 7, 2023

Pittsburgh, Pa. – The Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League (WPIAL) and Dunkin’ have teamed up to highlight the impact school counselors can have in students’ lives by creating the WPIAL High School Counselor of the Year Award, and nominations are now open until Monday, April 10.

The initiative helps kick off National School Counseling Week from February 6-10, and allows anyone within the WPIAL network of member high schools to nominate a high school counselor who has made a profound impact on their school and student body. The recipient will receive free coffee for a year at Dunkin’s Heartland Restaurant Group (HRG) locations, and be honored at the WPIAL Baseball Championships at Wild Things Park on May 30-31.

“We are proud to support the WPIAL and excited for the opportunity to support this campaign to recognize some of the incredible individuals that impact students in the communities we serve,” said HRG marketing manager Chelsea Halker.

Schools with the highest participation will be given the opportunity for a Dunkin’ Day, where representatives of Dunkin’ will visit the school to hand out promotional materials, coupons, and donuts (if approved). You can nominate a high school counselor for the award by clicking the link below. The winner will be announced on Monday, May 1.
