By Rachel Judy | March 31, 2011

On Friday, March 25, Danny Holland, a graduate student in Regent University's School of Psychology & Counseling, was recognized as the Virginia School Counselor Association's (VSCA) 2011 Graduate Student of the Year.

Holland was selected by Regent faculty members in recognition of his leadership qualities. This award recognizes students with an interest in becoming involved in professional organizations and who demonstrate a strong dedication to the school counseling profession. "This award is helpful in my preparation to enter the field of counseling, because it reminds me how everything I do reflects upon me, my university and the profession of counseling," Holland said. "It is a privilege that allows me to recognize the hard work of my professors, the collaboration of my classmates and the relationships gained during my season of preparation at Regent."

"Danny was nominated because he is an excellent student, has written two books on youth culture and has presented with me at four state and national conferences," explained Dr. Rosemary Thompson, associate professor in the School of Psychology & Counseling. Thompson has served has Holland's mentor for the past two years.

Holland has studied youth culture professionally for nearly two decades working with teenagers and training those who work with them. His presentations on youth culture, media influence, teen violence and drug use have been adopted by some of the nation's top law enforcement training organizations. He will complete his master's degree in summer 2011 and then enter into a residency for his professional counselor licensure.
