Jessica Miller, school psychologist intern and soon-to-be fulltime employee with the Douglas County School System (DCSS), recently won the Student School Psychologist of the Year award. The award was presented during an awards ceremony at the Georgia Association of School Psychologists (GASP) fall conference.

Ms. Miller is a Douglasville native and graduate of Alexander High School. She has been working as an intern with the Douglas County School System since January, 2017. This school year she has served students at South Douglas Elementary, Fairplay Middle School, and Holly Springs Elementary. Ms. Miller will graduate with an Ed.S. degree in School Psychology from Georgia Southern University in December. She was nominated for the award by her faculty advisor, Dr. Terry Diamanduros.

“Since entering the School Psychology program at Georgia Southern University, Jessica has been a stellar student who has maintained high grades throughout her time in the program,” said Dr. Diamanduros. “Her work reflects a strong knowledge base of school psychological services and professional standards. She welcomes challenging work and demonstrates a clinical astuteness that is beyond what is expected for her level of training.”

Nancy Schusterman, Lead School Psychologist for DCSS, is thrilled that Ms. Miller will join the school system full time in January. “Jessica has very quickly become an accepted and valued member of our School Psychologist team. Her insight into new developments in our field have been well received.”
