The award recognizes faculty and staff who have positively influenced students through their advising, guidance and support.

A student who nominated Hobbs wrote, “She goes above and beyond to make her students succeed. Before I took her class, I did not know much about writing, but by the end I felt confident writing papers.”

Students and employees can submit nominees to Phi Theta Kappa officers who select the winners. Phi Theta Kappa is a worldwide honor society with chapters in more than 1,300 two-year colleges.
