The University of Wyoming’s senior honor society, Mortar Board, recently selected this year’s winners of awards for outstanding advising, service and dedication.

Christine Wade is the recipient of the Outstanding Advisor Award. Wade is an associate professor and head of the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources. She also serves as an adviser to the UW chapter of Mortar Board.

The Outstanding Advisor Award recognizes a member of the university community who has performed outstanding academic, career and personal advising. Students are asked to nominate individuals who skillfully, and consistently, provide academic advice as well as career guidance, and who establish personal relationships with their students.

“Dr. Wade has done a fantastic job with Mortar Board this year, and I think we all appreciate her work and efforts,” says nominator Christian Moncrief, an environment and natural resources, and psychology double major from Cheyenne.

“Dr. Wade’s dedication to the students, both in and out of Mortar Board, shows her true passion for what she does,” says nominator Hailey Moss, an outdoor recreation and tourism management major from Douglas.

Kent Noble is the recipient of the Outstanding Service and Dedication Award. Noble is the Bill Daniels Chair of Business Ethics in the College of Business.

The Outstanding Service and Dedication Award recognizes a member of the university community who has exhibited exceptional dedication to students and service to the university for a number of years.

“Everything Noble does at UW is fueled by his want to improve the university and the students,” says Mortar Board member Kerry Adams, a marketing major from Castle Pines, Colo. “UW truly would not be the same without Kent Noble.”

Mortar Board is a national honor society that recognizes college seniors for outstanding achievement in scholarship, leadership and service. It provides opportunities for continued leadership development, promotes service to colleges and universities, and encourages lifelong contributions to the global community.

The UW Cap and Gown Chapter of Mortar Board was chartered in 1933. UW chapter members participate in many projects and activities throughout the year, both on the UW campus and in the Laramie community.
