Donna Dentler Service Award

The Donna Dentler Service Award is presented by the Executive Board to PennACE members who have provided outstanding service to the association.  Any PennACE member may nominate another current or retired PennACE member.  Self-nominations are also accepted.  Nominations are forwarded to the Executive Board, which will determine award recipients.  The Executive Board will solicit nominations each spring; nomination materials will be submitted to the current Past President or a board designated representative by April.  Members of the Board may also nominate and consider candidates throughout the year. A selection committee of previous award winners reviews the nominees and presents a recommendation to the Executive Board via the Past President. The Award will be presented publicly at the Annual Conference.  The Donna Dentler Service Award was created by PaCCS (Pennsylvania College Career Services Association) in 1991 to recognize the outstanding organizational and professional services of a PaCCS member.  The first award was received by Donna Dentler of Messiah College.  More about Donna Dentler.
