Scholl’s research interests include culturally responsive counseling, constructivist approaches to career counseling and career counseling approaches for community ex-offenders. As a member of the ACA Governing Council, he represents the Association for Humanistic Counseling and has been an ACA member for 27 years. Since the fall of 2012, Scholl has provided career support services to members of the ex-offender population in North Carolina and currently serves on the Forsyth County Reentry Council.

“I feel honored to be named an American Counseling Association Fellow. I find the recognition to be motivating as it represents a call for continuing to serve the profession as a counselor, scholar, educator and leader,” Scholl said.

This year, eight counselors were granted ACA Fellow status. All honorees are active members of the association and represent a diverse community of leaders that create and expand knowledge and insight into the counseling profession.
