Parliman Pops Up at the Academy

Emily Parliman is the a new Associate Director of College Counseling here at Western Reserve Academy. As a college counselor, Parliman helps juniors figure out what is important to them in a college, which colleges to consider, when to take the SAT/ACT, etc. She help seniors with their essays and applications and making sure they meet all the deadlines. “I meet with students multiple times through junior and senior year, so I know them well and can submit a counselor recommendation letter that really paints a picture of them,” Parliman noted. Parliman mentions that when came to WRA, she could immediately tell it was special from the close relationships students and teachers had and the cordial welcome she was given. “I love that teachers are involved with students’ lives beyond the classroom. And of course it doesn’t hurt that the campus is beautiful!” Parliman said about the community. She also noted how inclusive WRA is. As for the future, Parliman said, “I’m looking forward to getting to know my students better and learning all the WRA traditions. Right now I’m working on memorizing the words of the alma mater!” We hope that Ms. Parliman enjoys her first year at Reserve and that there will be many more to come!
