Michele Hunolt, Sedalia, director of Student Success and Retention Services at State Fair Community College, has received the 2012 New Professional at the Two-Year College award from the American College Personnel Association (ACPA).
The award recognizes a new professional employed at a two-year college who has displayed outstanding professional potential and commitment to student affairs and development.
Dr. Joe Gilgour, dean of Student and Academic Support Services, said Hunolt has worked full-time for SFCC for just over a year, and also served as a part-time academic advisor for a year.
“She not only exceeds the skills and expectations of her position, she changes lives on a daily basis,” said Gilgour.
Hunolt will be recognized at a national awards ceremony in March in Las Vegas.
ACPA has nearly 7,500 members representing 1,200 private and public institutions around the world. It is the leading comprehensive student affairs association that advances student affairs and engages students for a lifetime of learning and discovery.
