Employee of the Month
March 13, 2015

D. Kries, January Employee of the Month

Melanie Schoenborn, Bindery Manager in Library and Information Services (LIS), is the recipient of the March Employee Recognition Award. Melanie was nominated by Lynnette Fields, Director of Technical Services in Library and Information Services.

“Melanie has been with the University since 1987, and embodies all the qualities that make an outstanding SIUE employee.  She has an extremely strong work ethic, is conscientious, an excellent team member, and has been an integral part of LIS for the past 27 years.  In her capacity as the Bindery Manager, Melanie has supervised many student and graduate assistants over the years.  Her caring support and careful mentoring have started many of these students on the way to professional and personal success.  She is also a wonderful supporter of international students, not only assisting them with their studies and work, but also in their personal lives.  Many of her former students keep in touch years after they graduate.  Melanie has not only made a tremendous impact on LIS, she has made significant contributions to the University community.  She was a very active member of the Staff Senate for 16 years and chaired the Scholarship and Constitution and Bylaws committees.  I can’t imagine what it would be like not having Melanie in the department of LIS.”

-  Lynnette Fields, Director of Technical Services, Library and Information Services

It is always nice to have your work appreciated and it is a great honor to be selected as March 2015 Employee of the Month.  I would like to thank Lynnette Fields who nominated me and the other librarians Mary Rose, Paul Anthony, and Steve Kerber for supporting my nomination.  I have been in Technical Services for 28 years and have been working the reference desk for some years now too. I work with a great team in Lovejoy Library and I’d like to thank my fellow Technical Services team members who work hard behind the scenes to keep all the materials flowing through Lovejoy.  I especially enjoy working with our graduate assistant and five student assistants keeping Lovejoy materials repaired and new materials processed. I appreciate this recognition and will enjoy working at SIUE for many years to come.
