Antoinette Hart Wins Murff Award for Contributions to Career Services - April 14th, 2010

headshotAntoinette Hart, academic advising coordinator in The University of Texas at Austin’s College of Education, has won the 2010 Robert Murff Excellence Award for outstanding support of career services at the university. The Texas Campus Career Council (TC3) presents the award.

Nomination materials for Antoinette indicated that she has enabled the College of Education Career Services Office “to increase support services to the freshman and sophomore students.” Comments also included that she collaborates with Education Career Services “to bring in recruiters to visit with her Freshman Interest Groups (FIG) in order to provide students with more information about the profession they are entering and to give them some networking opportunities during their first and second years in the College of Education.” The nominating statement also cited her dedication to working in partnership with career services and encouraging “her students to begin their resumes and obtain some related work experience so students are better prepared for the job search during their last semester.”

TC3 aims to recognize the many “career agents” who assist The University of Texas at Austin’s individual career service offices and noted that Antoinette’s “contribution is a wonderful example of how academic advisors can work in unison with career services to assist students in their journey through college and beyond.”

This is the 12th year the award has been presented, and it is named in honor of the Dr. Robert Murff, founder of the university’s Career Exploration Center, in recognition of his lasting contribution to campus career services.

This year’s awards ceremony and appreciation luncheon is on Thursday, May 6, at the Etter-Harbin Alumni Center.
