Denise Lyons Recipient of PLA Leadership Fellows Scholarship

DLDenise Lyons, a Library Development Consultant (now Director) with the South Carolina State Library and alumna of SLIS, is the recipient of the PLA Leadership Fellows Scholarship for the Executive Management Program at the Evans School of Public Affairs, University of Washington.

The Leadership Fellows scholarships offer PLA members who are public library managers a chance to attend executive leadership training at some of the best universities in the United States. These university programs draw participants from various disciplines in government, non-profit, and the private sector, allowing PLA Fellows to learn leadership and change management concepts among professionals with different perspectives and experiences. PLA Fellows learn the value of representing and advocating for public library to a diverse group of interests.

Fellows will be asked to share their experience with PLA and contribute to the development of future leadership programming for public libraries. New skills gained through the programs will benefit their current roles and strengthen their future leadership capabilities. More information about the Leadership Fellows can be found online at http://www.pla.org/ala/mgrps/divs/pla/plaawards/Leadership/index.cfm.

PLA is a division of the American Library Association. PLA’s core purpose is to strengthen public libraries and their contribution to the communities they serve. Its mission is to enhance the development and effectiveness of public library staff and public library services.
