Roseanne August, Academic Coordinator 1 in the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, received ringing praise from four nominators.

When she started at WSU, she was briefly the only advisor for more than 1,000 undergraduates. “With no one to give her historical contexts,” Roseanne “took over the advising load,” oriented the two advisors hired after her, and “rebuilt trust and confidence in the advising experience.” As a nominator comments, “students are having such a great experience with her as an advisor, they are telling their friends, which is contributing to the steady growth of our programs.”

Roseanne August is honored for exceeding expectations, superior quality service, and demonstrating genuine interest in each student she advises.
