On Tuesday, April 10th, the Globe-La Crosse library celebrated National Library Workers Day with an open house, serving snickerdoodles and iced tea to all patrons. It was a chance to honor four very special students who do an excellent job covering the library desk, in the absence of campus librarian, Sue Miller. To get to know them better, each student has agreed to share the following:
Mary Jane Lecher has been working in the library since April 2010. Her career at Globe began when the campus opened in October 2009. She has already earned her Associate’s degree and is now pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in accounting. Mary Jane is a dedicated student, who is a wife and mother of two children. In her spare time, she enjoys bike riding, hiking and creatively pursuing various forms of art. Mary Jane is responsible for most of the colorful bulletin boards displayed in the library.
Denae Larrabee is enrolled in the Associate’s program as a medical assistant. She will be graduating in September 2012. Her future goal is to continue her education at Winona State University to earn her Bachelor of Science degree in nursing. Denae has been working in the library since spring quarter 2011. Her favorite tasks are helping Globe students with their questions on APA formatting, running computer programs and locating library books.
Melissa Henderson graduated from Globe in March 2012 with her Bachelor of Science degree in healthcare management. Melissa has returned for spring quarter in order to earn her Associate of Science degree in sales and marketing. Melissa says her favorite book in the library is The Help. She is an Aquarius who enjoys long walks on the beach and horseback riding….. when she is not studying.
Jennifer Miller graduated from Globe with her Associate’s degree in criminal justice in June 2011 and has returned to pursue her Bachelor’s degree in paralegal studies. Jenny’s husband and daughter are also part of the Globe family, as they are earning degrees in business and medical assisting respectively. Jenny reports that her favorite library book is The Killer of Little Shepherds, a true crime story which describes how forensic science began. Not only does Jenny work in the library, but her love of volunteering has led to an internship at a local law firm this quarter.
Be sure to stop in the library and meet these four dedicated and hard working Globe students.
