Meet Ms. Melissa Hoffner: Region 3 Advisor of the Year
NSCS is proud to announce Ms. Melissa Hoffner from University of Northern Colorado as one of the NSCS Region 3 Advisors of the Year. NSCS chapter advisors play a critical role in the ongoing operation and success of NSCS chapters. With 300+ chapters across four regions and 50 states, this award puts Ms. Hoffner in rare company.
“We know ‘the great resignation’ has had an impact on college campuses over the past 24 months which makes the dedication these advisors have shown to supporting student success so impressive,” said NSCS Executive Director Scott Mobley. “As higher education professionals, they are committed to ensuring students have access to the resources they need as they pursue their college dreams. They are also great role models for members to learn how to give back to society. NSCS is and will forever be grateful to these individuals for both their personal and professional service to our chapters.”
Melissa has always been communicative about her support for the University of Northern Colorado Chapter. She has always active with the new member recruitment efforts; obtaining the Eligible Member Invitation (EMI) list and finding an alternative way for the new eligible students to be invited. This year, UNC did not permit the release of student data to NSCS specifically, but Melissa was able to advocate for the chapter and have the university send invitations on its behalf. Melissa has always expressed interest in the participation of the re-build of the 2021-2022 Chapter Executive Board. With new officers this year – she continues to be a great resource for the chapter officers and new members.
