Northwest Nazarene University honored alumna Sandy Rumpel with its 2010 L.E. Wesche Outstanding Educator of the Year award. The award is given each year to an alumnus who has provided distinguished service in the field of education.

Rumpel has proven to be an influential leader by professional counseling associations and by her peers. She was instrumental in bringing the National College Fair to Boise and authored a resource guide that is used internationally by high school counselors for student career assessments. During her career, Rumpel was recognized with various awards and honors from the Idaho Counseling Association, the Idaho State Department of Education’s Safe and Drug Free Schools Program, the Boise School District and the Idaho School Counselors Association.

Rumpel graduated from NNU in 1977 having earned a degree in secondary education with an emphasis in physical education. She began teaching and coaching volleyball at NNC and later at Nampa High School where she was named Idaho’s Woman Coach of the Year for three consecutive years. After earning her master’s degree, Rumpel served as the school counselor at Nampa High School and later transferred to the Boise School District.

The L.E. Wesche Outstanding Educator of the Year award was established in 1987 in honor of Dr. Lilburn Wesche, NNU faculty emeritus. Dr. Wesche graduated from Northwest Nazarene College in 1951 where he later served as a faculty member and leader for 30 years.
