  • *Happy Anniversary Sue Wright!

    On April 22, we celebrate the 11th anniversary of Sue Wright’s employment in the Library.  She was hired at Alma College in January 2003 to work in the Athletics Department.  Sue began work in the library on a temporary basis in April 2003 as the Library Secretary, and became a permanent member of the staff beginning August 1, 2003.  While working in the library, she went back to college, taking classes here on campus. Sue completed her degree and is an Alma College graduate of 2012 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.  She is able to bring an artistic eye and her artist skills to many aspects of the library functions, décor, newsletters, brochures, and reports.  Please join us in thanking Sue for her work for our College Community.
