THS is pleased to announce that we have added the position of Archivist to our Elmhurst office staff and that our former Office Assistant, KATHY MC LEISTER, has been hired effective June 21!
Kathy was a valuable addition to our office staff until she stepped down to continue her Masters pursuit in archival and library studies. After her Spring graduation from University of Wisconsin she decided to accept our offer to rejoin THS in a new, professional capacity.
Executive Director Richard Sklenar is thrilled to have a dedicated archivist on board and he feels she is an important addition to our staff. The Elmhurst collections and archive holdings are our most valuable asset and Richard has been a steadfast protector of our treasures throughout the years. However, as THS gains prominence and our collections grow, the time necessary to properly care for the archives becomes imposing.
Richard can now concentrate on his responsibilities as Executive Director and concentrate on outreach, public relations, grant writing and fund raising – equally important components of our HQ operations.
WELCOME (back) KATHY! Look for her occasional Archive Updates here on Readerboard and in upcoming issues of MARQUEE!
