Meghan Gates named as 2013 Belanger awardee

Catholic University - Fri, 01/10/2014 - 12:25

Meghan Gates, Stacks Inventory Project Manager, has been selected as the recipient of the Edward J. Belanger Jr. Staff Award for Excellence in Service for 2013.

Ed Belanger worked for the Libraries for over 40 years before retiring in 2002 as our business manager. His service and dedication to his fellow staff was extraordinary; and he is one of the most positive, up-beat, and good natured people you will ever meet. After his retirement, his children made a donation to the Libraries for the creation of an award in his honor.

Each year the Libraries select a staff member of the year who not only contributes outstanding service to the library but also shares Ed’s good nature. Our recent practice has been for the past honorees to serve as the award committee, selecting from among nominations submitted by library staff.

Excerpted from one nomination:

Meghan exemplifies the attributes recognized by the award. She is committed to high quality work–especially in the service aspects of her work–being mindful of how her work affects both colleagues and patrons. She does this all with great dedication and an extremely positive attitude and cheerful enthusiasm. She always serves as a strong ambassador for the Libraries.
