Sandra “Sandi” Logan, a doctoral student in the College of Education’s counselor education program, has been chosen to serve as a Chi Sigma Iota Fellow for the 2014-2015 academic year. The distinction was awarded recently just one day after Logan learned that she’d also won the counseling professional honor society’s annual leadership essay contest.

Both honors are open to all master’s degree and doctoral students enrolled in counselor education programs throughout the U.S. 

She will begin her fellowship duties with initiation and orientation in March at the annual conference for the American Counseling Association. 

“Serving as a Fellow shows that the organization is investing in me, and in return, I will invest in the organization,” Logan said. “What CSI values is commitment, service and identity – all of which happen to be values that I also hold.”

Her winning essay focused on promoting professional identity through CSI chapter involvement.

“My inspiration for the essay was what I live every day,” she said. “My ‘doctoral world’ revolves around anything and everything related to counselor education and leadership development.”

Logan also is a regional representative and awards committee chair for the Florida Counseling Association, an awards committee chair for CSI’s Beta chapter, and a doctoral student representative for the UF chapter of Counselors for Social Justice. Her specialization within her doctoral program is leadership and advocacy.
