(Castle Rock, CO) National Life Group, a financial services company serving K-12 educators, selected Cimarron Middle School counselor Jill Bull as a LifeChanger of the Year award winner.

Along with national recognition as an outstanding counselor making a difference in students' lives, Bull will receive a $3000 cash prize to share with her school.

Sandy Austin, a colleague who nominated her for the award, said she's an extraordinary leader and that in her 33 years as an educator (9 as a teacher and 24 as a counselor), she's helped open four schools and has been crucial in establishing a foundation of success at each.

"She has also had many leadership positions in her school and district – including testing, 504s, crisis response, grading, and standards," said Austin.

Earlier this month, DougCo superintendent Erin Kane and Cimarron Middle School principal Chris Zimmerman presented Bull with her award.

"We are so incredibly proud of Jill and Cimarron Middle School," said Kane.

Bull has also served on the Colorado School Counselor Association's Board of Directors and was named the Middle School Counselor of the Year by the Colorado School Counselor Association earlier in her career.

According to National Life Group, LifeChanger is a national program that recognizes educators for the positive difference they make in the lives of their students, for being a leader in the school community, for exemplifying excellence as an educator, and for creating a nurturing atmosphere in our schools.
