LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 28, 2024) — The University of Kentucky Advising Network recently announced the recipients of the 2024 Ken Freedman Awards during the Ken Freedman Day of Recognition awards ceremony.

This year’s professional adviser award went to Phyllis Nally from the College of Arts and Sciences. Nally serves as a senior adviser in the College of Arts and Sciences, primarily working with pre-health students. 

Each year, the Ken Freedman Outstanding Advisor Award is presented by the UK Advising Network to one full-time professional adviser and one faculty adviser for outstanding service. Ken Freedman, the award’s namesake, was one of the founders of the UK Advising Network in 1986 and served as a professional advisor at UK until his death in 2001.

The winners are selected by a committee steered by the UK Advising Network following nominations by students, faculty and staff members. These awards are made possible through the support of the Office of the Vice President for Student Success. Awardees in all categories are also nominated by the UK Advising Network for the Region 3 and national NACADA (National Academic Advising Association) awards.
