For Immediate Release:
April 8, 2014
Lord Fairfax Community College Professors, James Brumbaugh and Jennifer VanCuren, will be honored with the 2014 Award for Advisors, presented by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society during NerdNation 2014 in Orlando, Florida, April 24-26, 2014. Brumbaugh is receiving a "Continued Excellence Award" and VanCuren a "Paragon Award for New Advisors." Recipients will receive commemorative medallions and be honored during the Association of Chapter Advisors Luncheon and the Hallmark Awards Gala.
The Continued Excellence Award recognizes advisors who have served at least four years and have previously won a Distinguished Advisor Award. The Paragon Award for New Advisors recognizes advisors who have served less than four years. Both award recipients have made significant contributions to the growth of the individual chapter members, served as the chapter's advocate on campus, and encouraged the chapter to be involved on the local, regional, and/or international level of the organization. Advisors were nominated by their chapters through the Hallmark Awards application process.
