WKU Libraries had a luncheon in Montana Grill, Bowling Green on December 15, 2011 to celebrate the Holiday and award its outstanding employees and student workers.
This year’s Margie Helm Award was given to Associate Professor of Library Public Services Katherine Pennavaria, who is the Coordinator of Glasgow Regional Library. The Margie Helm Staff Award went to Senior Catalog Assistant Ann Brown from the Library Technical Services. Three student workers, each from a different department received the Margie Helm Student Award. They were Allison Rahman, Christopher McConnell, and Brittany Crowley. Two teams also won the award: “Where in the World Is Big Red” committee consisting of Crystal Bowling, Tracy Bryant, Eric Fisher, Brent Fisk, Dan Forrest, Kenneth Foushee, Amanda Hardin, Christopher McConnell, and Jennifer Wilson and the ERC Moving team comprising Eric Fisher, Alan Logsdon, Sue Lynn McDaniel, Ellen Micheletti, Josh Mosby, Arthur Petersen, Roxanne Spencer, Sandy Staebell, and Robbie VanValin.
A fun game of “Can You Guess Who” added to the festivity and celebration. The organizers of the event Crystal Bowling, Amanda Drost, Tracy Bryant, Dean Jones, Brenda Woods, and Lynn Pawley did a great job preparing for it. They had gathered questions from Libraries’ employees for the party goers to guess who was behind a particular question such as “I used to play the accordion,” “I’m a vegan,” and “I was classified as a genius in kindergarten.” Retiree Gay Perkins came to the party from Louisville. Coupled with good food, everyone had an enjoyable time.
