New Mexico State University Library employee Sherry Ward recently received the 2009 Carl Faubion Outstanding Library Staff Employee of the Year Award in a ceremony at Zuhl Library.
Ward, an exempt employee in the Library’s Technical Services Department, was honored for her accomplishments in correcting and loading data for the NMSU-Grants library online catalog as well as providing training materials for library personnel from that campus.
NMSU Library Technical Services Department Head Ellen Bosman said, “In addition to the Grants campus project, which demonstrates Sherry’s ability to generate alternative solutions, she has worked on many major projects. These projects are a testament to her stellar organizational skills and dedication to getting the job done.”
The Carl Faubion Award is presented annually to an exempt or non-exempt NMSU Library employee who exemplifies excellence in customer service, exceptional contributions to the library, innovation and creative thinking in problem solving, or contributions which have reduced operating costs or resulted in administrative efficiencies.
The award was made possible by former NMSU President James E. Halligan and Mrs. Ann E. Halligan, who established the Carl Faubion Memorial Endowment for the NMSU Library in 2007. The endowment was established in memory of Carl Faubion, Mesilla Valley farmer and former NMSU regent, who passed away on October 29, 2005.
