Guidance Counselor Luncheons
Each year, we invite our Guidance Counselors to a complimentary lunch at a restaurant in their area to both thank them for their outstanding work and to update them on all the new, exciting things happening at Lander. These lunches are done throughout the year. We hope that you all the counselors at your school can join us for your area’s luncheon.
Each year, Lander asks Guidance Counselors from each high school in South Carolina to nominate outstanding high school juniors for the Junior Fellows award from Lander University.
To be considered for this award, nominees should:

Guidance Counselors will need to complete the Junior Fellows Nomination Form and send it back to Lander’s Office of Admissions by the end of February.
