NCHC Award for Administrative Excellence

The role of administrative professional in an honors office is essential for handling both day-to-day operations and long-term projects. Jacks and Janes of all trades, whether it be refilling the Keurig, assisting their director with assembling a timeline, consoling a discouraged student, or making the entire office laugh in a meeting--administrative assistants do it all.

Many administrative coordinators and assistants have dedicated years of hard work and commitment to ensure the standard of honors education is carried on within their own respective programs—and have helped to maintain great relationships among NCHC institutions. We are pleased to offer member institutions the opportunity to honor the dedication, hard work, and commitment of these individuals.

The 2022 NCHC Award for Administrative Excellence recipient will be recognized with an award at the Annual Conference this fall, and recognition in the conference program to thank them for their service and commitment to honors.
