Tennessee Association of School Librarians (TASL) has named Mrs. Stephanie Ham, Lead Librarian for Metro-Nashville Public Schools, to TASL’s Distinguished Administrator Honor Roll. Librarian Cami Townsel nominated Mrs. Ham for this honor. She is to be commended for his support of school libraries.
The Distinguished Administrator Honor Roll recognizes administrators in Tennessee who have been particularly supportive of a school’s library program. The award, in the form of a certificate, will be presented at the Awards Banquet during this year’s TASL conference in Murfreesboro on October 24th. Completion of some activity or support that enhances the school media program is required in order to receive this award.
Mrs. Ham has been a strong advocate for libraries in Metro-Nashville Public Schools. According to librarian Cami Townsel, Mrs. Ham advocates for school libraries and promotes the role of school librarians as instructional designers. Mrs. Ham handles large district initiatives as well as the needs of individual schools. Ms. Townsel is particularly grateful for new carpeting and shelves at Martin Luther King Academic Magnet School.
School librarians recognize how crucial the support of a good administrator is in developing and maintaining a quality library program that benefits all students. Metro-Nashville Public Schools is to be commended on having an honoree like Mrs. Ham.

of Education in bringing principals to the table and letting their voices
