Each year, MACAC seeks nominations of members by members who are doing exceptional work on behalf of students, the association and our profession.
Contact Nominations Committee Chair, Hillary Teague, with questions about award nominations.
The Gramenz Award was instituted in 1977 in memory of William Gramenz, former Director of Admissions at the University of Michigan-Flint and Michigan ACAC President from 1975-76. This award is the highest recognition in our association and is bestowed for outstanding service to students, counseling, our profession and the association.
MACAC's newest award recognizes MACAC members with more than five years service to the organization whose work reflects MACAC's commitment to "advocate, collaborate and educate" on behalf of students and counselors.
