There were many opportunities for growth and development in the Student Services Success Initiatives (SSSI) this year. Many of the SSSI students, faculty, and staff participated and engaged in multiple professional development events.

Amber Smith was awarded the New Professional award at the Arkansas College Personnel Association’s statewide conference, which took place in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Amber Smith and Sherry Robertson presented a poster on the Dr. Charles W. Donaldson Scholars Academy (CWDSA) in Louisville, KY at the Consortium for Student Retention and Data Exchange (CSRDE).
