MACOMB, IL - - Michelle Terry, Western Illinois University College of Business and Technology (CBT) academic advisor, was named the November 2014 Academic Advisor of the Month by the Council of Academic Advisors (COAA).

Terry was nominated by Samuel Webb, WIU senior finance major and one of Terry's advisees.

In his nomination, Webb said he went to Terry for advice about getting a master of business administration degree and/or double majoring.

"She scheduled another meeting with me and walked me through three different options for me to further my education without my request," Webb said. "I was really surprised and overwhelmingly satisfied with the amount of effort she put into my future plans. Michelle has always been enthusiastic and willing to help me in planning my academic path. She has taken time out of her schedule, with no appointment made, to sit down with me and address my concerns."

Terry received her master's degree from the University of Illinois and has served as an academic advisor for Western's CBT since July 1988.
