LaShanna Clark graduated from Rust College with a Bachelor’s of Arts in English, and Master’s of Education in School Guidance Counseling. She has worked at North Lawndale College Prep for 7 years, serving young scholars to exceed their potential to succeed. Her responsibilities are Department of Counseling Chair, Freshman Transition Coordinator, Director of Student Life, and Recruitment.
Throughout her professional career, Mrs. Clark has always had a passion in counseling needs of adolescents. She has focused on those needs within the educational setting and community agencies. She believes that all students and families should have access to resources no matter their circumstance.
In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter while watching Family Feud.
She believes that every student deserves an opportunity to succeed, despite the challenges or unfavorable circumstances they may face. This belief is what led her to a career at NLCP. NLCP goes above and beyond to prepare young people for academic success. As a NLCP alum, Dominique knows first-hand and as Counselor, she pledges to continue upholding each student to reach their potential beyond the North Lawndale community.
Jessica states, “I love working at NLCP because I am able to see the progression of our students throughout high school and college. Witnessing the students blossom into young adults, strive for success, and accomplish their goals is truly rewarding. I must add there are advantages for me as well, the students keep me youthful and serve as a daily reminder the power of education, perseverance and grit. I truly love the students, their families, and the relationships I have built with them. The work NLCP does is not only monumental for our students and their families but as serves as a catalyst for upward mobility for the North Lawndale community.”
