The National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) has selected Kerri Scott, associate director of forensic chemistry and instructional associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry, as a 2014 NACADA Outstanding Advising Award-Faculty Academic Advising Winner.
The award is given in recognition of her “demonstrated abilities as an advisor in nationwide competition….with the outstanding advising of students.”
Dr. Scott received a Certificate of Merit at an awards ceremony and reception during the NACADA annual conference held in Minneapolis, Minnesota on October 8, 2014.
In addition, the Office of Student Disability Services at the University of Mississippi has named her as a recipient of the 2013-2014 Access Award for her relentless support for students with disabilities in their classes.
Stacey Reycraft, SDS director, presented the award April 23 during the celebration of Disability Awareness Month.
Receiving an award for doing one’s work gratifying and validating, said Scott. “It is a fantastic honor, as I was just trying to do what I thought I needed to do,” Scott said. “To be recognized for trying to do my best is an incredible feeling.”
