Killeen Schlegel, program coordinator in the CPASS Office of Student Success, is one of four WVU academic advisers honored with the Nicholas Evans Award for Excellence in Advising. This annual award, established by the Office of the Provost, is given in honor of Dr. Nicholas Evans, a lifelong proponent of the importance of undergraduate advising at WVU. Each year two faculty and two staff are recognized for their work advising and mentoring students.
Schlegel was nominated by 10 coworkers, supervisors and students. Sean Bulger, supervisor for the CPASS Office of Student Success, says, “Students characterize Killeen as well-informed, organized, personable, proactive, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The faculty say she is highly sought out by students based on the reputation for excellence that she has established.”
One student wrote, “I can be a difficult student sometimes, but Killeen never gives up or loses spirit. She has also been a crucial piece of the puzzle to getting me on the correct track to graduation.”
Award recipients were recognized by President E. Gordon Gee and Provost Joyce McConnell at a ceremony held at Blaney House. Each received $1,250 in professional development support.
