Professional Excellence Award Winners Named at DWU
Monday, November 4, 2013 Dakota Wesleyan University has awarded professional excellence awards to Dan Bonte and Monty Bohrer.
Bonte, assistant director of admissions, is the staff winner of the Professional Excellence Award for last quarter. As a member of the admissions team, Bonte has served as a leader and mentor for new recruiters, athletic staff and students.
“He is well-respected by those he assists and while many seek him out for guidance, he also seeks out those who need help,” states one recommendation letter.
An off-campus admissions counselor expressed appreciation in another recommendation letter, stating, “Even though we are not in the same office, he has helped provide guidance and leadership when needed. He is always willing to help find the answer if it is not readily available. Dan is very willing to go above and beyond, for the benefit of the programs.”
Bohrer, associate professor and director of business, is the faculty recipient of the Professional Excellence Award. Bohrer spent this past summer not only teaching, but assisting in the management of the new M.B.A. program that launched in August.
“Monty is always working to get people collaborating on ideas and working together by encouraging their ideas and making suggestions on where some synergies might exist,” stated his recommendation.
