UACCM Instructor Given Regional Honor, Distinguished Advisor Award

“I am truly honored and humbled by the support of Beta Eta Sigma chapter at UACCM, and by the warm reception our chapter received at the Oklahoma-Arkansas Regional convention,” Herrman said. “Being selected for these honors has only furthered my desire to help our chapter members find their own paths to success.” 

The Horizon Award is given to advisors based on their contribution to regional and international programming. Herrman was nominated by Ashley Hall, a regional coordinator for Phi Theta Kappa and a chapter advisor at Black River Technical College in Pocahontas. The Distinguished Advisor Award recognizes advisors who have served at least four years and 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, or international level of the organization. 

“The convention was our chapter’s first time to serve as a host at a regional event,” Herrman said. “We were also given an internationally recognized REACH Reward certificate, reflecting our success in membership recruitment, and a certificate acknowledging our three-star chapter rating on the International Office’s 5-Star Chapter Plan.”
