  • The NBCC Foundation, an affiliate of the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC), recently selected Jenna Leigh Stack (CED student), of Greensboro, North Carolina, for the NBCC Minority Fellowship Program-Addictions Counselors (MFP-AC). As an NBCC MFP-AC fellow, Stack will receive funding and training to support her education and facilitate her addictions counseling service to underserved minority transition-age youth (ages 16–25).

The NBCC MFP will distribute up to $11,000 to Stack and the 17 other master’s-level addictions counseling students selected to receive the fellowship award. Stack is a graduate of The University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and is currently a master’s student in the clinical mental health counseling program at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Upon graduation, Stack will seek employment working with adolescents and adults coping with addiction and mental health concerns. She plans to focus on services for transition-age adolescents and young adults, as she believes this critical stage allows clients to be reached through prevention and early intervention. Stack intends to work in areas and populations of highest need due to her passion for improving treatment access to underserved populations. Earning this fellowship will allow Stack to meet this goal by providing access to educational resources and a supportive network of other mental health professionals.


  •  Dr. Nathaniel Ivers, CED alum and faculty member at Wake Forest University, was interviewed for a Newsweek story about the impact of rescinding DACA on dreamers’ emotional and mental health, as well as the availability of relevant services.

From the article:
Nathaniel Ivers… has worked with more than 100 clients who are undocumented immigrants, and he’s witnessed how the status compromises health and limits medical care. “For undocumented clients with whom I have provided counseling, a decision was often made about whether attending a counseling session was worth the risk of driving without a driver’s license, being pulled over, and later being identified by immigration,” he says. “Many counseling sessions were missed when word got around that immigration officials were stepping up their enforcement.”
