The Natalie Meggison Award of Excellence
This award is presented annually to a student in the Library and Information Technician program or the Information Resource Management program. Award recipients are students who show a commitment to technical services or client services and are in good academic standing. The Natalie Meggison Award of Excellence recognizes a student who approaches learning with respect and curiosity and who serves the profession with enthusiasm.
Natalie Meggison was a professor in the Library and Information Technician program, who brought her insight, experience, and expertise into the classroom. She was a professor who inspired students and made learning fun. Natalie sadly passed away in August 2018, and is greatly missed by all who knew her.
