The Ohio Educational Library Media Association, Ohio’s preeminent professional association for highly effective school librarians and libraries, is pleased to announce that Susan Yutzey, Past President, is the recipient of the Presidential Award.  The Presidential Award honors individuals in the library field for their service to school libraries.  President Liz Deskins, in her opening remarks said “I feel sure that everyone in this room has been empowered by Susan Yutzey.  She inspires us to do our best, and to challenge ourselves.  Not only is she a great leader, but she is a true friend, a lifelong learner, and a grand adventurer who is always looking for ways to make Ohio school libraries and the librarians who run them even more effective and successful as they work with students and faculty.  I’m sure all of us have a story of some way Susan has supported, nurtured or inspired us, and for all those reasons and more Susan Yutzey is receiving the OELMA Presidential Award.”
