Evelyn Boyd White, guidance coordinator at Thomas Dale High School in Chester, Va., assumed the presidency of the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) following the associations 67th National Conference in New Orleans, Sept. 22-24.
White will lead the organization of more than 11,000 members who support students in the high school-to-college transition.
While campaigning for the position of president-elect last year, White focused on challenges in the college admission process that will most affect students. The expected change in the demographics of college-going high school students, she said, will likely have a significant impact on the college admission process over the next few years.
A former NACAC board member, White has extensive experience in the admission profession and in national and state admission organizations, including the Potomac and Chesapeake Association for College Admission Counseling, one of NACACs 23 affiliates, and Delta Kappa Gamma Society International, a professional honorary society of women educators.
White received a B. A. in government and M.Ed. in counselor education from the University of Virginia.
