2013 Friend of SUNYLA
"I nominate John Schumacher for the Friend of SUNYLA Award for 2013. John has been a strong advocate for SUNY libraries and I can think of no one more deserving.... John first joined SUNYLA [Executive Board/Council] in 1999 as the OLIS rep and in 2001, upon the retirement of David Kreh took over as the UUP rep to SUNYLA.... John has always reported back on key initiatives taking place within the state and has always communicated important details to SUNYLA members. This makes us a stronger organzation and anyone who has taken the time to read John’s detailed reports in the council, you can attest to his steadfastness to SUNYLA and SUNY libraries. ...SUNYLA is fortunate to have such a tenacious advocate in their ranks. Anyone who has dealt with John knows first hand that he leaves no stone unturned. I believe John embodies what we look for in a FOS award and it is high time he be recognized.", Nomination letter [Editor's note: very much appreciated folks!]
