Congratulations to Colin McLeod, this year's recipient of the Melody Mastad Award!
The MacOdrum Library hosted a small event in April to honour its student employees. The library depends on its student workers, not only for their contribution to the library services, completing assigned tasks and functions, but serving as ambassadors to our patrons.
To highlight these contributions, MacOdrum Library established an award in 2013 to recognize excellence among our student staff. The award is named after Melody Mastad, a long-serving Stacks Co-ordinator, who supervised a great number of students, developed a rigorous training and development program, and encouraged students toward Service Excellence.
This year's winner is Colin McLeod. Colin has been a member of the Stacks Services team for 3 years at MacOdrum Library and has made significant contributions as a student employee. Colin was nominated for his strong work ethic, positive attitude and proven ability as a leader - always ready to help co-workers. "He is ready to go that extra mile when offering help, be it with any projects, addressing patron inquiries or helping out its co-workers".
