Peggy Clinton Memorial Service Award

Ms. Mary Alice Hennessy won the prestigious Peggy Clinton Memorial Service Award at the Missouri Association for College Admission Counseling (MOACAC) Conference in Kansas City.
  • "Having spent 40 years at their institution, this person is certainly passionate about putting students first.”
  • “Kind, witty, wise, a word master, easy going, but stands up for what is right.”
  • “A person of wisdom and warmth who handles the many challenges of their job with a sense of calm and a killer sense of humor.”
The Peggy Clinton Memorial Service Award:
"Peggy Clinton epitomized the role of the true admission professional. Some of those qualities include being detail-focused and caring for the well being of the students with whom she worked; she had a sense of humor and style. She was an active member of MOACAC and worked during the 60’s and 70’s for William Woods College. Peggy was respected, admired and loved by all.

In 1981, she was stricken by a stroke before a national fair and died soon afterward. In her memory, the Peggy Clinton Memorial Service Award was created. This award is bestowed upon an admission professional who exemplifies the qualities that made Peggy so special."
