USF SLIS Alumna Cecelia Solomon: From FAME to AASL

Cecelia Solomon graduated with a MA in Library and Information Science from USF in 1987. She has been a Media Specialist in middle schools for many years and enjoyed it (yes, middle school!). Her enthusiasm for the possibilities that media specialists (or school librarians, as she prefers to be called) can provide to students, teachers, and staff made her play an active role in professional organizations.

Solomon is the 2009-2010 president of Florida Association for Media in Education (FAME,) the school media specialists’ association for the state of Florida. And she has just been elected as the Director for Region V in the American Association of School Librarians (AASL)’s recent elections.

This is an exciting time for our profession. Digital resources, the learning commons, the cloud, and the world beyond our library walls,… Being a representative in AASL, giving a hand to new practitioners, and encouraging and supporting all school librarians to reach their best is how I want to give back”  said Solomon during ALA Midwinter in Boston, this past January 2010.

The USF SLIS congratulates this distinguished alumna and is proud of her active participation in the development of professional school librarians.
