“As an academic advisor, I work diligently to enhance the educational experience for my students,” said Wise in the release. “To me, winning this award means that I have made a difference, and that I have made an impact on someone.”

The National Society of Collegiate Scholars is "a prestigious honors organization that recognizes and supports high-achieving students across the United States," stated the release.
