This award recognizes the advisor of a chartered Dixie club or organization. The Advisor of the Year has been exemplary in his/her service and dedication to individuals within the club they advise, and they have contributed to the school as a whole through support and guidance of their club and its members. The Advisor of the Year is nominated by the general campus community and then nominees are contacted and asked to answer questions specific to the category. These materials are reviewed and narrowed to a field of five finalists by a preliminary screening committee. The materials from the five finalists are then passed to the DSUSA Inter Club Council who selects the winner.
