MACOMB, IL - - The Western Illinois University Council of Academic Advisor (COAA) Awards and Recognition Committee named Kenny Wheeler the February Academic Advisor of the Month.

Wheeler, an academic advisor at the WIU-QC campus, is regularly nominated by students for the award, according to Michele Aurand, academic honors advisor for the WIU Centennial Honors College. However, for February, he was nominated by Bradley Heitz (Rock Island, IL), a senior Bachelor of Arts in General Studies (BGS) major.

"Because of Kenny's hard work and countless hours of advising, I am on track to graduate from WIU in 2015, a goal that I once assumed was unachievable," said Heitz. "Kenny took the time to fully understand my academic and professional goals and aligned those interests with a course schedule that reflected them."

Wheeler has served as an academic advisor at Western since January 2009.

The purpose of COAA is to promote the quality of academic advising at Western Illinois University.
