Jeanne Catalano receives the Marietta College Inspire Award

July 2017 — Jeanne Catalano

As the Legacy Library's Circulation Supervisor, Jeanne Catalano helps hundreds of students every semester find the right book or offering advice on a project. Her dedication to her job and to Marietta College's students helped her earn the July 2017 inSPIRE Award.

"She is friendly and welcoming to all students who come into the library, especially the ones who work for her most," said an individual who nominated her for the honor. "Most importantly, Jeanne has been there for me during many moments that I needed advice and support."

Jeanne joined the College in the Summer of 2013 after working at West Virginia University at Parkersburg for 10 years. 

"Jeanne is an amazing source of support for students on campus," the nominator also said.

All inSPIRE Award winners receive a number of prizes for the honor, including a personal parking space for one month, a free lunch at Gilman Dining Hall, a gift card from the bookstore and a certificate to display at their workspace.
