The Director’s Award for Outstanding Service to Honors Programs was created in 2010 to recognize significant contribution to and support of the efforts of the University Honors Program on campus. The 2018 recipient of the Director’s Award is Dr. Sarah LeMire.
Sarah LeMire is the First Year Programs Coordinator at the Texas A&M University Libraries. Her work focuses on teaching first-year students about the variety of resources available to them in the Libraries and how to find, evaluate, and use information effectively. She was recognized as a member of the American Library Association’s 2015 class of Emerging Leaders and was a Library Journal Mover and Shaker in 2017.
Dr. LeMire’s collaboration with the Honors Housing Community to coordinate lessons from library faculty on information literacy and the in-depth feedback provided to freshman Honors students is helping to build important research and study skills that will be valuable throughout our students’ undergraduate careers and beyond.
