2021-2022 Award Winner

Spencer has been a student worker at the Library since 2019 and is majoring in Human Services at Fitchburg State.  His work ethic and attitude make him stand out as a student employee.  He is both welcoming and responsive to all users of the library.  His approachable presence at the circulation and research help desks allows other students to feel comfortable about asking for help. He is kind, compassionate, and a thoughtful human being.  During challenging pandemic months, he came to work without pause and continued to assist users with navigating the library and its resources.

Spencer is a superb mentor for new student employees and unfailing in his willingness to pick up shifts for his peers at the very last minute, even coming in as late as 10pm. All of these things credit him as the ultimate co-worker.

In recognition of Spencer's excellent service, the book Queer: A Graphic History was dedicated in his honor to the Library's collection.
