Current Recipient

The following comments describe this year’s award winner:

This person goes above and beyond her regular work duties to do a lot to ensure that morale remains high in the library. She organizes social functions, makes goody bags for the student workers, and always looks for ways to maintain our mental wellness. She goes out of her way to ensure that all staff feel recognized for their work and is a constant advocate for our facilities staff (teaching them ESL in her spare time). She started several traditions in the library that foster a sense of camaraderie and inclusiveness, such as trivia competitions and service excellence shout-outs at meetings.
