Second annual Counselor of the Year winners announced
RELEASED: September 18, 2008
What makes this award particularly noteworthy is the heartfelt nominations from students whose lives these counselors have impacted. Kline's nomination by Caroline Curry '12 of Jackson, Ky., reflects the counselor's professionalism and genuine desire to do her best for her students.
"Her manner of constant availability, wise words, experience and a true interest in a student's future and happiness at the school of their choice was of paramount importance to her," Curry wrote. "Absolutely nothing got in the way of her desire to help you find the best school, best aid and best fit possible for you."
Tess Simon '12 of Lexington was equally generous with her praise of Mills.
"Randy Mills has been not only my college counselor through the majority of my high school years, but he has become my great mentor and friend," Simon said in her nomination. "A true ace-in-the-pocket, it's impossible to feel uncomfortable around Mr. Mills.
In recognition of their service to students, Kline and Mills will receive a letter from Centre President John Roush, an autographed copy of the book Stephen Rolfe Powell: Glassmaker, by internationally renowned glass artist and Stodghill Professor of Art Stephen Powell, and an invitation to campus for a performance at Centre's Norton Center for the Arts.
