[The OLD] Attempting Elegance

The Big News

Posted in Libraries, Management, Misc., My Life by Jenica Rogers on April 1, 2009

Time for The Big News.  I don’t really know how to say it other than to say it.

As of July 1, 2009, I will be the Director of Libraries at SUNY Potsdam.

I am understandably thrilled, nervous, proud, and eager…  It’s a major accomplishment in my life, and I hope to follow it up with lots more noteworthy accomplishments for our libraries and our campus.  SUNY Potsdam is full of good people trying to do smart, innovative, sensible things for our users, and I’m just so excited to have the chance to support that work, help provide vision and leadership, and advocate for the things we do so very, very well.

And that’s all I have to say, I think. :)

    Congratulations! I couldn’t be happier for you and can’t wait to hear more about your work as Director as you move into that role. It’s inspiring to see someone our age in that position and I can’t think of any better-equipped for it.

    Go to Nin’s just outside of Potsdam, it’s in nearby Norfolk (pronounced Nor-fork), it’s the best diner in the area. Best bacon cheeseburgers i have ever had.
