Mobley was presented with this award at the NACADA Annual Conference in Cincinnati, Ohio, on October 6.

Award winners support NACADA’s Core Values, represent the best professional practices in advising and have a great impact on their students and colleagues.
“I think it is really exciting to have won this award recognizing the work that I am doing with our students, but, more importantly, to know that the students who I advise see the value in my support is really special,” says Mobley.
