Stephany Goodbread Advisor of the Year


The Goodbread Advisor of the Year recognizes a faculty member who has been particularly helpful to honors students in an advising or mentoring role. Named after the late Stephany Dianne Stott Goodbread, the award provides the opportunity for honors students to acknowledge faculty members from across the campus.

Stephany Goodbread served as the first assistant director in the Honors College before retiring in 1993. She helped establish the Honors College as a place where students' academic efforts are recognized and encouraged, where faculty and staff urge students to stretch, risk and find their element. Stephany Goodbread was known for her sense of humor, her compassion and her willingness to spend time with students. She passed away in December 2010.
