Hale named School Psychologist of Year

Steve Hale, of Pulaski County Public Schools, has been honored as School Psychologist of the Year by his peers of the Virginia Academy of School Psychologists (VASP). The award was presented earlier this month at their fall convention in Virginia Beach.
Hale has worked in Pulaski County for 31 years.
He is the current past president of VASP and is the first sitting executive board member to receive the honor.
The award committee cited Hale’s commitment to his profession, advocacy to children and families in Virginia, as well as his progressive leadership role as reasons for his nomination.
Hale has been a leading force in developing a Response to Intervention model in Pulaski County.
The Response to Intervention model seeks to helps students with academic and behavioral concerns as early as possible so that they can achieve success in school.
He also takes great interest in the changing role of the school psychologist and has been a leader for other school psychology departments in the commonwealth.
Hale is described by his colleagues as a compassionate individual who exemplifies what is best about the profession of school psychology.
Terri Sisson, VASP’s president said, “I cannot think of a more deserving person to receive this award. (Hale) goes beyond the day-to-day responsibilities of the school psychologist to best meet the needs of the students and families in his district.”
Hale will now go on to the national level to be considered for the national School Psychologist of the Year Award in 2009.
