Congratulations to managerial economics academic advisor, Jemi Okolo for being named one of the recipients of the 2022 Eleanor and Harry Walker Academic Advising Awards.

The Eleanor and Harry Walker Award Fund was established to support and recognize excellence in advising at UC Davis and in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. Eleanor and Harry Walker have been long-time leaders in recognizing the importance of advising and the role that academic advisors play in helping students succeed. Through their generosity and commitment, the Eleanor and Harry Walker Award celebrates excellence and innovation in academic advising. The college grants the following awards to individuals who exemplify excellence in their area.

Reflecting on the recognition Okolo said, “I am incredibly honored to be nominated by my colleagues and chosen for this award. Seeing the students I’ve helped throughout their journey at Davis walk across the commencement stage is often its own reward, but I am also happy to be recognized by the College.”
