MSU adviser receives local, national awards
MISSISSIPPI STATE -- An academic advisor with the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine has received two awards for excellence in student advising.
Julie “Missy” Hadaway, admissions and student affairs coordinator, has been awarded the 2014 Irvin Atly Jefcoat Excellence in Advising award at MSU. She was also selected for an Outstanding Advising Certificate of Merit in the primary advising role category by the National Academic Advising Association.
Hadaway has guided the career paths of thousands of undergraduate, graduate and veterinary students since 2010. Students value her wisdom and seek her expertise as they advance through their studies.
“Ms. Hadaway understands and accepts the pivotal and influential role an adviser can play in a student’s life,” said Richard W. Meiring, assistant dean of admissions and student affairs at the College of Veterinary Medicine. “She embodies commitment to students through her knowledge of academic requirements and her ability to counsel students through a rigorous academic program while fostering personal and honest relationships. Missy provides students with time, attention, and a welcoming spirit beyond typical expectations.”
Both honors are based on an extensive nomination procedure that included recommendations from current and former students and letters of support from colleagues and administrators in the veterinary college, as well as other MSU departments, to demonstrate her professional contributions and accomplishments.
Hadaway received her bachelor’s degree in business from Mississippi University for Women in 1994. She joined MSU in April 1997.
The National Academic Advising Association promotes student success by advancing the field of academic advising globally. The association provides opportunities for professional development, networking, and leadership for its diverse membership, which includes thousands of faculty, full-time advisors, and administrators whose responsibilities include academic advising.
