Legacy League

Initiated in 2015, the TACES Legacy League is an elite recognition of TACES members, past and present, who have made a significant and lasting impression on TACES or on the counselor education and supervision profession. Members honored through the Legacy League are recognized not for their personal achievements but rather the impact, influence, and contributions they have made to other professionals and to the profession. This honor is bestowed upon those who have demonstrated a professional life well-lived, have created innovative and enduring change, and who are exemplar role models for generations of professionals to follow.

We honor the following individuals as members of the TACES Legacy League.
