Columbia – Ridge View High School Psychologist Dr. Sandra Manning is receiving two well-deserved state and national awards. This morning the S. C. Association of School Psychologists presented Dr. Manning with the Award of Excellence in the Practice of School Psychology. Earlier this week, the National Association of School Psychologists and its Graduate Education Committee selected her as a Model School Psychology Intern Field Supervisor.
Dr. Manning has been a school psychologist since 1978. She has served in Richland Two at Ridge View High School and E. L. Wright Middle School since 2002. She says the highlight of her career has been helping students as well as watching her profession evolve through the years. Being able to help train the next generation of school psychologists is one of her greatest accomplishments.
“Each year I continue to strive for excellence and to help teachers and students. I take great pride in seeing students who struggled as freshmen grow and prepare to move on to the next phase of life as seniors leaving high school,” said Dr. Manning.
Dr. Manning says receiving state and national recognition at the same time is especially humbling and she is grateful for the ability to serve in a profession that she loves so much and one that is so well-respected.
