L-R David Arneke, Femi Balogun
Femi Balogun from the Research, Outreach, and Instruction Department is the winner of the 2015 Outstanding Student Library Worker Award.  The award, made possible through a gift from David Arneke of the Friends of the UNCG Libraries Board of Directors, is given annually. The winner receives a spot on the award plaque, a $500 award from Mr. Arneke, and a $500 gift card from the University Bookstore.

Femi is a graduating senior studying Spanish language, literature, and culture, with a minor in Health Studies. She has worked in the libraries since 2013 in both the Digital Media Commons as well as the Research, Outreach, and Instruction department. She fully embodies the criteria for the award, including reliability, responsibility, conscientiousness, and commitment to service and teamwork.

Congratulations, Femi!

Later in the month, Paula Damasceno was chosen as the UNCG Student Employee of the Year for 2014/2015. Paula works in the DMC where she created and ran the New Short Film Festival for the University Libraries this year.
