Harry R. Carroll Award

The New England Association for College Admission Counseling dedicates its
 highest annual award to the memory of Harry Rowland Carroll (1924-1982), a man who honorably served the University of New Hampshire and Colby College for twenty-five years.  With a sense of fair play and good humor, Harry Carroll provided leadership, guidance, and wise counsel to colleagues in New England and throughout the United States. His standards of excellence, his dedication to fair and impartial work on behalf of students, and his commitment to the ethical standards of the admission profession set a high mark for those who follow.  The Harry R. Carroll Distinguished Service Award recognizes college admission counseling professionals whose contributions and achievements merit special recognition and whose work reflects the spirit and principles of this dedicated man.

The selection process is facilitated by the immediate Past-President, in their role as Nominating Committee liaison. The selection committee is composed of past winners and past presidents (some people will fit in both categories). While the committee does not formally invite applications, if you have questions about the process or would like to submit a name for consideration, please contact the NEACAC Past-President at [email protected].

The 2023 recipient was John Hamel from Anna Maria College. John was presented the award at the Annual Meeting on May 25th 2023. Congratulations, John!
