I am incredibly humbled and honored to be considered and awarded for this. ACURIL is my core professional and scholarly community. Judith Rogers (now retired) was Director of the University of the Virgin Islands Libraries, my mentor, and a leader for all of us. She received this award, so I am all the more humbled and thrilled to be able to follow in her footsteps, or at least I hope I’m doing so–she’s amazing, and I am working to do my best. And, she’s one of the many fantastic people who have earned this award in the past. I am working to learn from all, and to do my best to support all of us!
