2023 Recipients ~ Renee Duquette Sheer & Cindy Ernharth (also pictured, Jane Nini, Awards Chair)

2023 Recipient Renee Duquette Sheer

Renee Duquette Sheer is recognized for her leadership with the clock hour process this year, as well as overall conference planning.  Through this work, she has ensured that members will receive the clock hours needed to maintain their professional credentials.  She is always willing to step in as our editor-in- chief, google docs expert, and MACCA go-to person.  In addition to her work with MACCA, Renee has enhanced  the development of new professionals as she teaches her students and furthers the knowledge in the K-12 community regarding career development.

2023 Recipient ~ Cindy Ernharth

Cindy Ernharth has dedicated her time and effort to the professional development of all MACCA members.  For the past two years, Cindy has led MACCA’s board, ensured that our conference planning has stayed on track, and has recruited a dynamic line-up of speakers.  She has made inclusivity a priority in identifying speakers and topics that support the development of career professionals who serve a wide variety of constituencies.  She is always looking for ways to encourage new members to get more involved. Cindy is recognized as the face of MACCA to her colleagues and our community.  Without Cindy’s work, her commitment to MACCA, her willingness to take action, and her attention to detail, we would not have the wonderful conference and online events that we benefit from as career development professionals.
