December 2nd, 2014 | SMWC
Jeff Malloy, dean of students and Student Activities Committee (SAC) advisor at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College (SMWC) recently received the 2014 Midwest Advisor of the Year award at the annual Association for the Promotion of Campus Activities (APCA) Conference in Chicago, Ill. Malloy is now eligible for Advisor of the Year at the national APCA Programming Conference, March 18-22, 2015, in Jacksonville, Fla.
As advisor of the Students Activities Committee (SAC), Malloy helps the committee plan and book entertainment on campus for SMWC students. He encourages members to work together, network in the community and prospect for new experiences in order to provide outstanding entertainment to student populations.
“I encourage our students to dream big,” states Malloy. “This award is really about how great our SAC members are past and present. I simply advise the organization. They are the ones who dream big and execute all the events.”
Malloy received the 2014 Midwest Advisor of the Year award after being nominated by Marguerite Frazier, 2014 graduate of SMWC, former student president and current co-advisor of SAC.
“The work that he does every day goes so far beyond the scope of his job description!” states Frazier. “He constantly strives to make this department better, and with that, to make SAC better. The reason SAC was awarded Midwest Organization of the Year last year was because of Jeff's unending dedication.”
The Promotion of Campus Activities Conference is primarily for student activities boards to book events for campus. In addition, there are guest speakers and workshops for the students to bring tools back to their activities board and in turn bring quality programming to their respective campuses. The award ceremony took place at the end of the conference to recognize outstanding boards, students and advisors.
