Davey Simo, OME-RESA.
Davey Simo, Library Support Specialist at NorthEast Ohio Management Information Network (NEOMIN), has been selected as the 2004 recipient of the INFOhio Spence White Service Award.
INFOhio Executive Director Theresa M. Fredericka said Davey was chosen from several excellent nominees for the award because of "her excellent leadership abilities and tremendous efforts in providing exemplary service to the INFOhio project for NEOMIN and the entire state."
John Jaros, NEOMIN Executive Director, nominated Davey for the award, explaining the traits that have exemplified her career as a school library media specialist and, since 2000, as a NEOMIN staffer. "Davey has a tremendous work ethic and excellent organizational skills," Jaros explained. "She lives her dedication to the library profession with a heart for learning, especially for students. At NEOMIN, we benefit from Davey's ability to provide vision and leadership.
"Since Davey's start at NEOMIN, she has been responsible for writing and implementing grants for NEOMIN and our schools," Jaros continued. "Her efforts in this area have proven to be very successful with our districts receiving over $700,000 in federal grant monies and school library services expanding in both Ashtabula and Trumbull counties."
Congratulations Davey on receiving this special award.
