Ken Freedman Outstanding Advisor Awards & Day of Recognition
Each year the Ken Freedman Outstanding Advisor Award is presented by the UK Advising Network to one full-time professional advisor and one faculty advisor for outstanding service. Ken Freedman, the award's namesake, was one of the founders of the UK Advising Network in 1986 and served as a professional advisor at UK until his death in 2001.

"Toot Your Horn Tuesdays" and "Top Toots" Recognition
Members of the UK community are encouraged to "toot your horns" and tell us about the outstanding work being done by advisors on UK's campus. You may recognize yourself or a valued colleague via the submission form here. Weekly Top Toots will be selected from the pool, and those advisors will be featured in an upcoming Advising Network Weekly Digest.
If a college or organizational unit is doing good work that you'd like to have featured, we also invite you to submit information about those initiatives! To "Toot Your Horn" for a college or org unit, submit an Announcement for the digest or email firstname.lastname@example.org with "Toot Your Horn" as the subject line.
