LSC-CyFair librarian receives leadership honor
Lone Star College-CyFair (LSC-CyFair) Librarian Monica Norem was recently selected to participate in the 2011 Texas Accelerated Library Leaders Institute, more popularly known as the TALL Texans.
Norem is the only one from the Lone Star College System, one of two from Houston and one of 22 from across Texas chosen to attend the Texas Library Associations (TLA) 17th annual summer leadership institute.
Participants are competitively selected based in part on their leadership experiences, as well as their desire to turn learning opportunities into service for libraries, communities and the profession as a whole.
“I enjoy working in a creative environment like LSC-CyFair where faculty members are interested in new methods to engage and motivate students,” said Norem, a founding faculty member and a reference librarian.
The TALL Texans Leadership Institute features an intensive curriculum covering professional issues from the latest scholarly publications on leadership, which will help librarians gain deeper understanding of management, communication and strategic planning.
