SAP keeps students from ‘slipping through the cracks’ says Dean

Two years ago, Mrs. Karen Parise approached Brophy Principal Mr. Bob Ryan about taking on the position of student assistance counselor, a position that hitherto had not existed.

Mrs. Parise, who has a Master’s Degree in Counseling and is a licensed therapist, had worked as a college and academic counselor at Brophy since 1999.

Mr. Ryan took her suggestion and last school year Mrs. Parise became the student assistance counselor.

The little wooden box that sits quietly in the back of the football office never really seems to get much attention, unless someone is using it to rest a drink on.
