    Utah State Board of Education

    Utah ACTE Member Award
    Awarded February 2018

    Lillian Tsosie-Jensen worked as a School Counselor and a School Counselor Specialist for the Utah State Board of Education. Lillian was a primary player in advocating to the Utah State Legislature for the bill to fund Utah school counselors to earn a College and Career Readiness Certificate. The certificate is heavily focused on CTE and “1, 2, 4 or More” post-secondary options and promotes the “and” in College and Career Readiness. Lillian is constantly looking how to best serve and support students in their goals through CTE. She recognizes and supports the need for students to develop their own path to their futures, valuing the opportunities that CTE programs provide students. Lillian has been a main contributor to UtahFutures.org, used as a major platform for student career planning. She is an outstanding teacher for both students, school counselors and adult educators.
