Sara Polanchek 2016 Charter Day Award Recipient

Congratulations to Sara Polanchek for being named the recipient of the 2016 Charter Day Award in Outstanding Service to the External Community!

As the Clinical Director in the Department, Sara works tirelessly to ensure that the services our counselors-in-training offer our community are excellent. She clearly aligns herself with the mission of the University of Montana: to offer programs and services responsive to the needs of Montanans. Sara serves as an exemplary ambassador who has strengthened the counseling services in our state, and maintains dynamic connections between the Department of Counselor Education and therapeutic professionals in our communities. Congratulations, Sara!
