What a way to end Women's History Month with a notice about an emerging leader in the library profession.
The New Members Round Table (NMRT) is announcing that Janel White, Broadcast Librarian at National Public Radio in Washington, D.C., is the recipient of a $1,000 scholarship to sponsor her participation in the American Library Association’s Emerging Leaders Program.
White applied to participate in the Emerging Leaders program out of a desire to give back to ALA, the library community, and her patrons. “ As a librarian, it is my duty to not only serve my patrons but also the field of library science by constantly evolving, overcoming challenges, exploring new ideas and contributing to the profession,” says White. “Attending both the mid-winter and annual meetings as well as networking with my peers as part of this program will prove to be an invaluable experience for me in fostering further techniques of critical inquiry, developing the willingness to examine complex issues and improving my ability to communicate effectively.”
