There have been professors, higher education leaders, world-renowned authors and speakers, and so many others all with the goal of helping students succeed. It is so humbling to be included with all those amazing individuals. I never dreamed I would actually receive a call informing me I was a recipient of this award,” Dr. Kelsay said. “Through the years I have enjoyed working with younger members of our profession, being a sounding board, guiding them in their career path, and helping them in their path to success in higher education. This award just gives me another way to accomplish that.”
