GOOD LUCK ON YOUR NEW LIFE ADVENTURE

Some retired, others looked for new horizons, but they are still part of the Priddy library family. We have only words of thanks to all of them.  They are all missed, and all are still in touch with us!

TONI NEGRO

In December 2017 Toni retired from the Priddy Library. She had worked for 40 years as a School Library Media Specialist with Montgomery County Public Schools before jointing USG in 2009 as a Library Technician; later reclassified as Librarian I (2013). Retirement from Montgomery Country Public Schools didn’t stop Toni, and neither will retiring from USG! She continues to be an active member of the American Library Association and the King Farm residential community (which luckily for us is nearby, so she visits us from time to time!).

MADHU SINGH

In February 2018 Madhu retired from the Priddy Library. During her 15 years at USG she grew from a Library Technician to being the Coordinator for Circulation and Reserves. In addition she took classes with University of Maryland and received a Master’s degree in Library Science. She looks forward to travel, spend more time with family and friends, and enjoy life!

NICKOLAS FALK

After working for more than four years, first as a Library Technician and after graduating with his MLIS, re-classified as a Librarian I, Nickolas left us in July 2018 to pursue his dream to be back in his home state of Washington. He was instrumental in bringing new technology to the library for students and faculty to explore new possibilities. His energy and enthusiasm are endless!
