COLLEGE STATION -- Dr. Holly C. Gaede
, instructional assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry at Texas A&M University, has been selected as one of five recipients of the 2013 President's Award for Academic Advising.
Gaede was honored for her exceptional counsel and career guidance earlier this week by Texas A&M President R. Bowen Loftin as part of the annual University Advisors and Counselors Spring Awards Breakfast, held May 1.
Recipients, who each receive $2,000 and a plaque, were selected by a committee composed of three students, the president-elect of University Advisors and Counselors, and a representative appointed by Texas A&M's Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Programs and Associate Provost for Academic Services. Selection was based on nomination packets that included letters from fellow advisors, students and faculty.
Dr. Timothy P. Scott, associate dean for undergraduate programs in the College of Science, also received the honor in 2005, as did the Department of Biology's Christine Farris and the Department of Physics and Astronomy's Sandi Smith in 2009.
