Congratulations to Clinical Assistant Professor Sally Hunter on receiving the 2016-2017 Exceptional Faculty Mentor and Advisor Award from TennACADA (the UT branch of the National Academic Advising Association). She works hard alongside the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences advising staff to offer academic advising to Child and Family Studies (CFS) students, which is at the heart of student success. When asked what she loves most about her job, she stated it is “having the opportunity to encourage and challenge students, as they figure out their strengths and choose their next steps in life.” The department is lucky to have her!
