Rising Star Award Committee

The Affiliate Presidents’ Council and the NACAC Board of Directors present a Rising Star Award to honor individuals and programs that exemplify excellence and dedication to serving the needs of students and those who guide them in transition from high school to college. The Rising Star Award encourages affiliates to look within their association and identify and support new members who are deserving of this honor.  The award may also be presented to new programs offered within an association.
