Sarah Ward (MLS 2012) is the recipient of the TWU SLIS 2018 S. Janice Kee Continuing Education Award, presented April 5 at the TWU SLIS Reception in conjunction with the TLA annual conference in Dallas. This $500 award was established in 1987 by native Texan and TWU alumna Sarah Janice Kee (1908-1998) for graduates who seek financial support for continuing education. 

Ward works as a teen services librarian at the Denton Public Library, where her work at the reference desk drives her to pursue continuing education on topics relevant to patron needs. She previously managed two secondary school libraries. She continues to blend these two areas of librarianship by chairing the 2018 Summer Reading Program and managing a partnership with Denton ISD’s summer school program. Ward currently is a member of ALA, TLA, YALSA and PLA, and is an active volunteer with Denton County Friends of the Family.

With the funding provided by this award, she plans to take several ALA eLearning courses, covering such topics as management, outreach and social justice.
