Update: Congratulations to Anissa Radford for receiving the University of Kentucky’s 2017 Outstanding Professional Advisor Award and to Lori Garkovich for receiving the Outstanding Faculty Advisor Award.
Each year, the University of Kentucky Advising Network recognizes two advisors, one professional advisor and one faculty advisor, with the Ken Freedman Outstanding Advisor Award.
The College of Agriculture, Food and Environment boasts 28 Freedman nominees this year, more than any other college or unit at the University. The college's nominees, listed below, will be recognized at the Ken Freedman Luncheon on February 23.
The two awardees will receive a $500 travel grant from UK Student and Academic Support, a unit of the UK Division of Student and Academic Life. Awardees will also be nominated by the University for the NACADA Region 3 Excellence in Advising Award and for the National Academic Advising Association Outstanding Advisor Award.
Ken Freedman, the award's namesake, was one of the founders of the UK Advising Network in 1986 and served as a professional advisor at UK until his death in 2001.
