Members-at large

  *   Laura Carscaddo ('04)
  *   Courtney Fuson ('03)
  *   Diana Holden ('04) "I am nominating myself because I would like to serve SIS in this capacity. I believe that  my experience in both academic libraries and in school libraries gives me some insight on what SIS graduates need to succeed in a crowded job market.  I value the education and experience I received as a student at SIS and want to help the school continue to excel."
  *   Adam Kemper ('12) " Self-nomination.  After graduating from SIS I moved to Martin employed as the Acquisitions Librarian at the University of Tennessee Martin library.  I would like to be considered to serve on the Board to stay connected to those who helped me so much starting out, and to contribute to others staying connected as well.  I would like to continue to grow as an information professional, and to also help by giving back to the program which is, quite literally, the reason I am doing what I do today."
Thanks to those who nominated candidates and congratulations to the nominees!
