The Advisor of the Year Award is designed to recognize a faculty or staff advisor to a student organization who has made a significant contribution to both the student members and the organization as a whole. With more than 400 advisors serving Baylor student organizations, the Advisor of the Year honor will be awarded to an individual who works to compel his/her organization to distinguish itself. The Advisor of the Year Award will recognize an individual for his/her service, dedication, mentorship, compassion, consistency, and wisdom.

[2015-2016 AWARD WINNER]

adv of year 2015

The 2015-2016 Advisor of the Year award was presented to Mrs. Rochonda Farmer-Neal, the advisor for Baylor Ambassadors. An excerpt from her nomination letter reads:

Rochonda is in her 7th year serving with the Baylor Ambassadors. Her student nominators described her in the following way: “While she firmly supports the Ambassadors, she strongly likes for the group to be student-led. She helps us find opportunities and opens many doors for us, but doesn’t do this at the expense of student leadership". Additionally, Rochonda actively empowers each student to better pursue his or her goals as Christian servant leaders, and gives her time and wisdom out of genuine care for student success.

Congratulations to Rochonda on a productive and successful year!
