Below is an excerpt of remarks from President Bradley Paramore from the OSPA 2019 Business Meeting April 5 when he assumed his new role.
I have identified a few goals that I hope that we can accomplish together during my time as president. I would like to continue our work addressing the school psychologist shortage by connect that work with a goal from our strategic plan to recruit diverse individuals into the field of school psychology. I believe that we can do this by exposing perspective students to the field of school psychology. This is something that we need your help with! If you work in a high school or would be willing to speak to students at a high school or university we need you. I have set a goal of exposing 1,000 students to the field of school psychology over the next year. I plan to chart our progress along the way. Please email me at Bradley@ospaonline.org if you would be willing to speak to even one student.
