Admissions Counsellor Wins Canadian Regional Service Award
“We’ve known for a long time that Siobhan is excellent in recruiting students, in mentoring those students and providing a terrific example of hard work and dedication to the rest of us in our office,” says Phil Kay, Director of Admissions & Financial Aid, of Tyndale Admissions Counsellor, Siobhan Koch. Siobhan has now been formally recognized, beyond the Tyndale communitym, for her hard work.
The North American Coalition for Christian Admissions Professionals (NACCAP) has awarded her the 2012 Canadian Regional Service Award for her service to Tyndale. This award is given annually to one admissions officer in Canada recognizing them for their contribution to their institution as well as Christian higher education in general. She was nominated by several individuals and selected by the Board of NACCAP for this award.
“When I heard my name called for the Regional Service Award I was definitely surprised,” says Siobhan. “After being in admissions for five years and seeing how many wonderful counsellors there are across the country—this is a huge honour. I am so thankful to work with a wonderful office of people who I am sure had a part in nominating me.”
Siobhan’s award comes only a year after Phil Kay won the NACCAP award for Admissions Officer of the Year. The Admissions Officer of the Year award is presented to an admissions professional at a Christian institution who has had the best performance in admissions in all of North America and has completed three or more years of service at a member institution.
“We’re really proud of Siobhan and pleased to see that she is receiving recognition for a job well done,” says Phil Kay. “Her assistance and participation in the Leading Edge program is a solid demonstration of her commitment to students even after they get through the Admissions process.”
