Assistant Director of Admissions Hannah Suddendorf received the Iowa Association of College Admission Counseling’s (ACAC) Rising Star Award. This annual award recognizes one outstanding admission staff who exemplifies excellence and dedication to serving the needs of students in transition from high school to college. Suddendorf is the only Iowan to receive this honor in 2014. She is also Iowa’s nominee for the National Association of Admission Counseling’s Rising Star Award. That winner will be announced in September.
Sarah Washler, admission counselor, was one of three state nominees for the Iowa ACAC Admission Professional of the Year. Iowa ACAC members are given the opportunity to nominate up to three high school counselors and three college admission professionals throughout the state. The award honors members who go above and beyond to support the needs of students and their families.
Both Suddendorf and Washler were recognized for their accomplishments at the Midwest Association of College Admission Counseling Conference in Madison, WI on May 18-20.
