Nancy Beane, former associate director of College Counseling, was honored with a national award for her dedication to college admissions.
The National Association of College Admission Counseling (NACAC) announced Nancy is the recipient of the Margaret E. Addis Service to NACAC Award. The award "honors a long-time, respected leader of NACAC who never faltered in her commitment to ensuring ethical practices. The Addis Award recognizes a NACAC member who has provided the association with unique and outstanding service."
To receive the award, the honoree must be a member of NACAC for more than 10 years, be a constant and passionate voice for ethical practices and standards, and have served as a leader within NACAC over an extended period of time, among other criteria.
Nancy retired at the end of the 2019-20 academic year after 31 years at Westminster. She arrived in 1989 as a history teacher with more than 20 years of classroom experience. Three years later, she moved into a college counseling role where she helped hundreds of students on their college admissions journey.
