UNK- Aaron Steele of Hickman has been named recipient of the spring 2008 Distinguished Tutor Award for his work with Academic Success at the University of Nebraska at Kearney
David Brandt, academic services coordinator, said, “We honor Aaron for his dedication to the students at UNK. He is always willing to take the time needed to make sure the student he is tutoring understands the importance of quality study skills as well as the concepts and basic understanding needed in that area of study.
“He goes above and beyond in assisting students and does an excellent job of communicating with faculty and staff. His positive attitude is contagious and it not only reflects on the students he serves, but everyone with whom he comes into contact,” Brandt added.
