NSCS is proud to announce the winner of the 2022 Laura Taddeucci Downs National Advisor of the Year Award: Professor Elizabeth Rhoades from the University of Akron. Each year, this award is presented to a national advisor who goes above and beyond for their students and advisees. The recipient is someone who embodies NSCS’s Three Pillars of scholarship, leadership, and service while helping others to do the same.
Professor Rhoades stands out as one of our top chapter advisors and is an amazing pillar and strong mentor for the students and NSCS members at the University of Akron. She always goes above and beyond for her students and the members of NSCS. Professor Rhoades attends officer meetings, helps execute events with her knowledge of, and history with, NSCS, and is a reliable contact for anything the officers need. Her support via involvement in chapter activities like meetings, events, and service projects does not go unnoticed by the national office or members of the local chapter at the University of Akron.
“Professor Rhoades always goes above and beyond for her students and the members of NSCS. She attends officer meetings, helps execute events with her knowledge of, and history with, NSCS, and is a reliable contact for anything we need as officers,” said Abigail Geiser, chapter president for the NSCS chapter at the University of Akron. “She is always willing to help out and support the officers and other members. In the fall 2021 semester, her help in executing our Pinning Ceremony for new members was invaluable. We honor her for all the help and support she’s given to us throughout the year.”
