In honor of former library student employee, Carolyn Craig Franklin, and in recognition of her significant relationships as a student with the library staff, the Carolyn Craig & Carl M. Franklin Student Service Award is presented annually to two outstanding student workers.
This year’s applicant pool is a testament to the numerous student workers that provide excellent service in their roles at circulation, the reference desk, and technical services. The committee had a very difficult time awarding only two student workers!
The 1st 2015 Franklin Student Service Award is presented to Emily Metcalf. During her time at Denison, Emily has learned almost every student function in the circulation department – from shelving to inventory. She has even learned how to repair the books!
Her attendance, work ethic, reliability and job performance are exemplary. Emily’s attitude is helpful and positive, and is always willing to help others in the campus community.
Her nominators write, “Emily maintains a positive attitude and cheerfully approaches every tasked assigned to her, from the mundane to the complex.” We wish her the best of luck as she pursues a Masters Degree in Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois.
The 2nd 2015 Franklin Student Service Award is presented to Sarah Altimore. Sarah has been a friendly face
behind the circulation desk and reference desk during her time at Denison.
She has displayed a mature attitude towards his library position, earning the trust and respect of his supervisors. His attention to detail, work ethic, and overall demeanor are exemplary.
Her nominators write, “Sarah is very personable, outgoing, and dependable. In the spirit of Carolyn Craig Franklin, she puts outstanding service above all else.”
We wish her the best of luck next year as she begins her career in D-Town (Detroit).
