Lindsey and Deichert Honored at University of Mount Olive

MOUNT OLIVE- LaToya Lindsey, assistant director of athletics, and Nathan Deichert, assistant professor of psychology, received Co-Advisor of the Year awards at University of Mount Olive’s annual awards ceremony. Lindsey serves as advisor to the Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC). Deichert serves as the advisor of The National Honor Society of Psychology (Psi Chi).

The Advisor of the Year award is presented by the Student Government Association to the student organization advisor who shows the greatest willingness to work closely with students, who helps to get students involved and who “goes above and beyond the call of duty’’ in working with the group. A committee of students and staff appointed by SGA chooses the recipient.

Lindsey has been the advisor for SAAC for almost five years now, and she has been able to improve the club with each year. Whether it is consistently raising thousands of dollars for the Make-A-Wish foundation or providing seminars to members of the club to expand their education, Lindsey has been able to organize one of the most successful clubs on campus every year.

Under Deichert’s direction, Psi Chi has been involved in many service projects while also procuring funds, setting up travel, and assisting in student registration for the Psi Chi funded trip to Jacksonville, Florida for the annual Southeaster Psychological Association Conference.

University of Mount Olive is a private institution rooted in the liberal arts tradition with defining Christian values.
