UNCW’s Adamovage Recognized for Her Efforts with Military Education Council

Wednesday, December 06, 2017

Seventy years after its founding as a school for World War II veterans, UNCW continues its strong support of Americans who serve in the armed forces.

Ashley Adamovage, military liaison and program manager in the UNCW Office of Military Affairs, serves as president of the Southeastern Council on Military Education. The organization supports military education throughout North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.  

For their efforts, SECOME and Adamovage are being honored with the 2018 Council of College and Military Educators Gary A. Woods ACME Award. The honor is bestowed to an Advisory Council on Military Education (ACME) in recognition of significant contributions to the cause of military and/or veteran education. Adamovage was instrumental in SECOME’s founding in 2014 and, as its president, has worked to strengthen the quality and quantity of support services it provides.

“The board of directors and I are greatly humbled and honored to be receiving this award,” she said. “Service through SECOME is natural for all of us because we truly believe in the mission and we enjoy serving those who serve or have served."

UNCW and SECOME will both be receiving awards at the CCME National Symposium in March 2018. Bill Kawczynski, director of military affairs, will collect the 2018 Institution Award on behalf of the university.
