    [Section_Field4] => 
    [Section_Value4] => <p class="p1">Aaron W. Hughey received his baccalaureate degree in Biology in 1980 from the University of Tennessee at Martin. While at UTM, he served as the editor of The Pacer, the campus newspaper. This position afforded him an insider&rsquo;s perspective on the inner workings of collegiate student affairs. It also afforded him the opportunity to gain considerable expertise in supervising junior staff members.&nbsp; In the fall of 1980, he enrolled in the master&rsquo;s degree program in Educational Psychology (with a minor in Zoology) at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. While completing his master&rsquo;s degree, he was employed by the Department of Student Housing Services as an Assistant Head Resident in Hess Hall. In this position, he supervised seven Resident Assistants and was responsible for approximately 400 students.&nbsp;&nbsp; Upon receiving his master&rsquo;s degree in 1981, he took a job as a Residence Hall Director at Western Kentucky University. While at WKU, he completed a specialist degree in Counselor Education (with an emphasis in Student Personnel Services). After completing his Ed.S., he enrolled in a doctoral program at Northern Illinois University in August of 1984. While at NIU, we served as a Residence Hall Director for Stevenson Towers South from 1984 to 1986. In this professional position, he was responsible for supervising a senior staff of four and a Resident Assistant staff of 20. He returned to WKU in September of 1986 to become the Assistant Director of University Housing. He finished my dissertation and was awarded an Ed.D. in Educational Administration (with an emphasis in Higher Education) from NIU in December of 1988.</p>
<p class="p1">He was promoted to Associate Director of University Housing when he finished his doctorate and began teaching graduate classes for the Department of Educational Leadership at WKU during Spring Semester 1989. In 1991, he became an Assistant Professor in the same Department. His primary responsibilities included coordination of the graduate program in Student Affairs. He immediately began updating the curriculum and focusing on graduate student recruitment. He was eventually promoted to Associate Professor in 1996, achieved tenure in 1997, and was promoted to Professor in 2001.</p>
<p class="p1">In addition to being a full-time faculty member in the Department, he also served as interim director of WKU&rsquo;s Knicely Institute for Economic Development during 2002-2003 and was Training Coordinator for the Center for Training and Development from 2001-2003. The Department of Educational Leadership was restructured in 2003 and, after serving a year as an Interim, was selected as the first Department Head of the newly created Department of Counseling and Student Affairs. He served in this capacity until 2008, when he returned to the faculty.&nbsp;</p>
<p class="p1">He has authored (or co-authored) over 60 refereed publications on such subjects as higher education administration, student affairs, counseling and testing, diversity and management. He consult extensively with regional companies, organizations, agencies and schools and provides training sessions, programs and workshops on a variety of topics such as quality assurance, statistics, teams, diversity, leadership/supervision, change management and motivation.</p>
<p>In addition to the supervision experience noted above, Aaron W. Hughey has supervised Practicum and Internship students consistently since becoming a faculty member. Many semesters he was the sole supervisor as students entered this phase of their program. As enrollment grew, he worked with appropriately qualified adjuncts from the practitioner side of Student Affairs to insure that students received structured, qualitative feedback in their experiential assignments. He continues to coordinate supervision for the graduate students in this program area with the assistance and support of Dr. Burke, the other faculty member currently assigned to this program area. He has also been instrumental in developing training workshops for on-site supervisors and conducts workshops as required to insure consistency and adherence to applicable standards.&nbsp; His background and familiarity with those working in Student Affairs at WKU and elsewhere helps him to be an effective advocate for both students, departments, and the profession.</p>

<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>She started her professional career in the Hopkins County School System at Madisonville North Hopkins High School.&nbsp; Her positions in the school system included classroom teacher, secondary school counselor, Counseling Department Chair, Advanced Placement Coordinator, and College Board Representative.&nbsp; Perhaps her most significant contribution to the school and the community was made possible by the approval of a grant for minority and low-income students that was written by her and her superintendent.&nbsp; This was the result of a conversation she had with him about her concern for students who did not have everything they needed for their classes and could not participate in the clubs and organizations of their choice.&nbsp; The only qualification for participation was for students to be eligible for free lunch.&nbsp; For those students, money from this grant covered course fees, books, supplies, tutoring services, dues for organization memberships, and any school related travel.&nbsp; In addition to attendance at cultural events, each school year ended with a semi-formal dinner for the students and their parents/guardians.&nbsp; This grant was being funded when she left the school system in 1993.&nbsp; She thoroughly enjoyed her work in the Hopkins County School System where she had the opportunity to encourage many students to attend college who were the first from their families to do so.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>After receiving her doctoral degree from the University of Kentucky, she accepted a tenure-track faculty position at Auburn University (Alabama) in 1996.&nbsp; She was recruited to Western Kentucky University as an Assistant Professor in 1997 and received early promotion to Associate Professor in 2002.&nbsp; Since being on the faculty at Western Kentucky University, she has been actively involved at the department, college, and university level.&nbsp; She was the School Counseling Program Coordinator for seven years, an Alternate Senator for the department for one year, Senator for the department for two years, and Senator-at-Large for the college for one year.&nbsp; She has been a member of several Search Committees and has chaired three of the last four in her department.&nbsp; In addition, she received a 2-year appointment to the University Faculty Appeals Committee for Continuance, Tenure, and Promotion and this appointment was extended for her and her committee to a third year.&nbsp; She served as a consultant to Parker-Bennett School for several years with the goal of increasing the involvement of parents in the school.&nbsp; Other highlights of her work in higher education have been the two 3-year appointments from the Governor to the Program Review Committee of the Education Professional Standards Board.&nbsp; The members on this committee reviewed and made final decisions about approval for all new or revised programs in the Colleges of Education in Kentucky.&nbsp; Individuals on the Program Review Committee were also invited to be members of NCATE teams that evaluated the colleges and universities in Kentucky.</p>

    [Section_Field4] => Individual Counseling
    [Section_Value4] => <p>I believe understanding and acceptance are the basis for change. In response, I seek to create a comfortable environment that frees individuals to explore and ultimately develop new ways of being. My approach considers the influence of family and environment in shaping our beliefs and behaviors. Despite the significance of these factors, clients are not bound by their past, but free to create new patterns for living. To facilitate this process, I work primarily from Solution-Focused and systemic theories. I like to incorporate behavioral goals into my practice as I think it is important to carry movement from the counseling environment into the broader context of life. Ultimately, clients are both expert and author of their lives, my goal is to listen, understand, and join in creating solutions.</p>
