Pamela Thompson, the librarian at VMHS and the lead librarian for the district, was selected to participate in the TALL (Texas Accelerated Library Leadership) Texans Institute the week before Thanksgiving break. The institute took place in Lake Dallas at the Monseratt Jesuit Retreat Center. The 25 librarians from throughout Texas "were selected from a pool of dynamic Texas library leaders to study strategic planning, risk-taking, conflict negotiation, persuasion, coaching, ethics, and more."
To attend the institute, participants must meet the following criteria.
Five (5) years of experience working in libraries;
Current Texas Library Association membership
Ability to turn training into action
Desire to improve yourself, libraries, and communities
Congratulations, Ms. Pamela Thompson, for this fantastic opportunity! We are grateful for your leadership.
