SDSM& T FINANCIAL AID DIRECTOR SHARON COLOMBE RECEIVES AWARD FROM SOUTH DAKOTA COUNSELING ASSOCIATION
Sharon Colombe, SDSM& T Director of Financial Aid, received the Marvin Kemp Award from the South Dakota Counseling Association ( SDCA) during the SDCA’s recent annual convention in Aberdeen. The Marvin Kemp Award, which is SDCA’s top honor, was established in 1961 to recognize outstanding service to the counseling profession. The award is given only to an individual who has contributed to the counseling profession and SDCA for at least ten years, is active in the community as a civic leader/ volunteer, and displays continued professional growth.
Sharon Colombe has been a member of SDCA since 1970 and has served as SDSM& T Director of Financial Aid since 1987. “ Any time you work in education, you have to come from a counseling viewpoint,” says Sharon Colombe. “ It’s always important to remember that we are dealing with individual people.”
The South Dakota Counseling Association previously honored Sharon with its Mary Lark Humanitarian Award in 1987 and the C. J. Peterson, Jr., Memorial Award in 1976.
