Debra Dorsett Student Support Advisor, Student Services St. Petersburg College
It is very humbling to be a recipient of this prestigious award. Students attempting to be self-sufficient inspire me daily. After 20 years working in advising, I formed the belief that a genuine connection between student and advisor will motivate them to strive toward the bench mark of graduation. Establishing a connection is important because it demonstrates true concern for the student’s overall wellbeing and helps them become well rounded, accountable and responsible for personal and educational challenges and pursuits.
