Education Professor Honored with National Advising Award
Tamara Randolph, assistant professor of education, was selected as an Outstanding New Adviser Certificate of Merit recipient in the Faculty Academic Advising category from the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) this year.
This award is presented to individuals who have exemplified outstanding academic advisement to students and who have only served as an adviser for three or fewer years. The category includes individuals whose primary responsibility is teaching and who spend just part of their time advising students.
Randolph is one of two faculty advisers nationwide honored with this award this year.
“I have never worked with a professor who invests as much time, energy, care and personal concern in her advising as does Dr. Randolph,” said Mark Haynal, dean of the School of Education and Psychology at Walla Walla College. “She is nearly always available to the students, encouraging them and helping them believe they can succeed. Dr. Randolph makes her advisees feel like the time they spend together is the most important thing happening on campus.”
Randolph will be honored and presented with this award in Las Vegas, Nev., during the annual NACADA National Conference in October.
