Representative Horn is recognized by the NC School Psychology Association

Representative Horn is recognized by the NC School Psychology Association NC House Representative for Union County District 68, Craig Horn, visited Sara Ryan, UCPS School Psychologist, at Shiloh Elementary on October 22 to receive his Friends of School Psychology Award from the NC School Psychology Association. Representative Horn and Mrs. Ryan first met over coffee at Alice Jules last spring to talk about the roles of school psychologists in supporting school safety and mental health in NC public schools. Representative Horn is eager to learn from and collaborate with NC educators in order to improve student outcomes. He went on to advocate for state legislation aimed at supporting the recruitment and retention of school psychologists to NC, including improving the ratios of school psychologists to students in our schools to more closely align with national recommendations and better support comprehensive service delivery. Representative Horn and Mrs. Ryan continue to work together on legislative advocacy efforts for school psychologists, school safety, and mental health in NC public schools.
