On Thursday, she was honored with the college’s prestigious Phee Boon Kang‘73 Prize for Excellence in Advising and Mentoring.
“Dorlean has always been willing to go above and beyond to support her colleagues and help them achieve their goals,” says Beloit College President Scott Bierman in a statement. “Dorlean is a very happy and helpful person who loves to joke and have fun. Her positivity shines through in everything she does, and in every interaction
she has across campus.”
