Phyllis Hooyman on Council

Phyllis Kleder Hooyman, director of financial aid at Hope College, has been elected to the national Assembly Council of the national College Scholarship Service (CSS) Assembly.

          The CSS Assembly is one of three assemblies within
  The College Board, a national membership association of
  schools and colleges whose aim is to facilitate student
  transition to higher education.  Serving high schools,
  colleges, universities, students and parents, the
  organization is a nationally recognized source of programs,
  services and information in the areas of assessment,
  guidance, admission, placement, financial aid, curriculum
  and research.
          The CSS has two primary emphases:  providing a
  forum for discussion and consideration of policies, programs
  and services of The College Board which relate to the
  economic aspects of college attendance, and consideration of
  CSS purposes and procedures as they affect groups not
  equitably participating in educational and vocational
  opportunities.
          Hooyman's three-year term on the Assembly Council
  will extend through 2002.  The council meets twice annually
  at The College Board offices in New York City.
          A member of the Hope College staff since 1974 and
  director of financial aid since 1984, Hooyman has been
  active in college financial aid issues on the state,
  regional and national levels.  Among other professional
  activities, she is a past president of the Michigan Student
  Financial Aid Association, and has addressed Senate and
  House committees in Washington, D.C., concerning financial
  aid issues.  She received the Meritorious Service Award from
  the Midwest Association of Student Financial Aid
  Administrators in 1991.
