Martha Scott Johnson, academic advisor in CBS, recently received the 2018 NACADA Region 6 excellence in advising for a new advisor award. The national advising association offers this award to individuals who have worked in the field three or fewer years and demonstrate excellence in their work with students.
“Martha is a strategic and thoughtful advisor; valuing advocacy, student learning and reflection,” says Stefanie Wiesneski, assistant director for academic advising in CBS. “In her one-on-one interactions, she is is able to show compassion and intensive support for students in distress, while still being able to be direct and provide challenge for student as they develop in their own decision-making.”
Scott Johnson joined the CBS Student Services staff in 2015 after working at the University of South Carolina, where she also received her Master’s of Education in higher education and student affairs. She will be recognized at the NACADA Region 6 conference in Minneapolis in May.
