Jamie Wheeler, an A&S professional advisor, is a 2012 recipient of the University of Kentucky's Ken Freedman Outstanding Advising Award, which is given each year to one professional and one faculty adviser. Candidates for the award are nominated by UK's student body, and this is the second year in a row a professional advisor within A&S has received the honor. A&S professional advisors work with more than 300 students each, with each focusing on a particular academic community. Wheeler advises students in the Humanities community, which includes 13 majors. In this interview, we sit down with Wheeler to discuss the award, her passion for advising, and what advising within the College of Arts and Sciences entails.
