UCO’S CALEB CASH RECOGNIZED FOR WORK IN STUDENT ORIENTATION
Caleb Cash, coordinator of Parent and Family programs for the Office of Campus Activities at the University of Central Oklahoma, recently received the Association for Orientation, Transition, and Retention in Higher Education’s 2014 Region IV New Professional Award.
The award recognizes a new orientation, retention and transition professional who has demonstrated service to the association and the profession.
Cash works with Parent and Family Orientation at Central and annually helps more than 600 parents transition their children into college. He also advises Central’s student orientation leaders, helping to create new programs that the students facilitate.
Post-orientation, Cash serves as a liaison between family members and the university through his management of Central’s Parent and Family Association.
“I work to create memorable programs for both students and family members throughout the academic year. I also have the privilege to work with many student organizations as an adviser and see the growth and excitement students have when creating new and different events,” Cash said.
“I am so proud and happy for Caleb to receive the New Professional Award. In the two short years he has been at Central, he has connected with our students, expanded our parent and family programs and added so many creative touches and changes to many of our long-standing programs,” said Kay Robinson, director of Campus Activities at Central.
“He knows how to change and make programs better while never losing root of our traditions.”
