Two Mississippi State academic advisors are being recognized by the National Academic Advising Association for significant contributions to the improvement of academic advising. Tim Fancher, an academic coordinator with the University Academic Advising Center, and Caroline Cooper, academic records assistant in the art department, are selections for 2013 NACADA Certificates of Merit. They and other honorees will be recognized formally later this year at the organization’s annual conference in Salt Lake City.
Fancher, a 1990 MSU history graduate, has worked with undeclared majors for more than a decade. The Kosciusko resident is being recognized for his achievements in the primary advising award category. Earlier this year, Fancher was recognized with MSU’s Irvin Atly Jefcoat Excellence in Advising Staff Award.
Achievements by Cooper, who joined the university in 2010, were recognized in the competition’s new advisor category. A native of Ayden, N.C., she is a 2004 interior design graduate of East Carolina University. She said her background in art and design has helped her work with students as they plan professional careers in the arts.
