Excellence In Working With Advisers

The Earl Reum Award was created in 1991 to honor the outstanding contributions of writer and speaker, Dr. Earl Reum, whose contributions to the field of student leadership development over the years have affected thousands of advisers and students in the U.S. and Canada.  He wrote extensively to create a leadership curriculum for teacher and student use and authored many articles and monographs dealing with a variety of student activity topics. 

Dr. Reum founded our organization, the National Association of Workshop Directors (NAWD), and was a leader in his own right and an ardent supporter of student activities.  In 2004, the award’s nomination and presentation was transferred to NAWD where it replaced the organizations Workshop Director of the Year Award, which has been presented since 1985. 

Eight regional winners will receive a plaque donated by Herff Jones, Inc.  The national recipient of this award receives a ring and plaque provided by Herff Jones, Inc. The regional and national Earl Reum Awards are presented at the annual National Conference on Student Activities, sponsored by NAWD and held each December.
