    Across our 31 KTC Programs, there are hundreds of leaders and counselors who prove the possible with their students each and every day as they climb the mountain to and through college. There are also those few, distinguished, excellent leaders who go above and beyond; they transcend expectations and they inspire others. That is what the KTC Excellence in Leadership award recognizes.
