Congratulations Cathy W!
Cathy Wilterding, a Librarian III and Coordinator for Instruction/Outreach Services, was named 2008-2009 Employee of the Year at the Staff Council banquet last night. She was the July 2009 Staff Council Employee of the Month.
Cathy was nominated for Employee of the Month by Dr. Marilyn Duran, assistant professor of nursing. “Cathy cares about student learning and has a strong desire to help students be successful. It is impossible to teach a research course without the support of the library. Each semester I encounter nursing students who are eager to learn but intimidated by the word ‘research’,” Duran said. “Cathy has been very helpful in encouraging my students to believe that they can succeed in research. Each semester she teaches my students how to get the research information they need. She teaches in a simplified way that makes it fun and interesting.”
“This past fall I wanted to develop a research tutorial to help the students gain more experience in how to use the library. The information required was extensive,” Duran said. “Cathy was more than willing to help me develop this tutorial in addition to her regular workload in the library. This was above and beyond her job requirements. The support I have received from Cathy is truly remarkable. She exemplifies what is best about Tarleton.”
