St. Anthony Park's Errol Edwards is Minnesota School Counselor of the Year

Errol Edwards

Congratulations to Errol Edwards, St. Anthony Park Elementary school counselor, who was honored as the 2024 Minnesota School Counselor of the Year at the Minnesota School Counselors' Association conference in Rochester earlier this week.

This marks the third consecutive year that a Saint Paul Public Schools counselor has been named the Minnesota School Counselor of the Year. Mr. Edwards joins Jeanette Vyhanek and Keela Kuhlers.

Mr. Edwards was also named the 2022 Minnesota Elementary School Counselor of the Year. He is in his seventh year as an SPPS school counselor. Prior to his role at SAP, he was a school counselor at Barack & Michelle Obama Elementary. 

Said St. Anthony Park Elementary Principal Karen Duke: "Mr. Edwards works tirelessly to ensure the success of our students and their families. Whether supporting a family through a mental health crisis, greeting students at buses each morning, teaching classroom lessons about career dreams, modeling courage and honesty in talking about race with colleagues and students, or leading our school's PBIS team, Mr. Edwards embodies the principles of compassion, authenticity, skill, and commitment in working every day toward more just and equitable education for our students."
