Graduate assistants, nurse practitioner receive honors at state conference
Northwest Missouri State University was well-represented as students and staff members last month attended the Missouri College Professional Association conference, where three Northwest students and a staff member also were honored for their work.
Brittany Davis, Kathryn Donovan and Lindsey Williams received the Stephen Peterson Outstanding Graduate Student Award. Although the award is typically given to one student, all three were honored for their work in Northwest’s Office of Campus Activities and their efforts to improve the student experience.
Judy Frueh, a nurse practitioner at the Wellness Center, received the Best of MoCPA Award for presenting the best educational session at the conference. Her program was titled “Taking Care of You.” Her presentation will be submitted for consideration at the organization’s national convention next spring in Kentucky.
MoCPA, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, is the state affiliate of the American College Personnel Association, College Student Educators International. The association promotes the learning and development of students enrolled in institutions of post-secondary education through the ongoing professional development of college student affairs administrators and student development educators.
The conference, Oct. 9-11, featured educational sessions, networking opportunities and keynote presenters.
Northwest Director of Campus Activities Angel McAdams Prescott served as the 2011 conference chair. Also representing Northwest on the MoCPA executive board is Scott Shields, president-elect; Rose Viau, secretary; and Dr. Matt Baker, member at large.
