As the school year wrapped up, IMSA staff and faculty took time out to celebrate all who published in the last year. Whether it was a book or an article, the authors were presented with a Leon Lederman Scholar Award.

IMG_0044The published articles are available online in the Digital Commons, and the books that were published this year can be checked out of the IRC.

IMG_0042The event, which was held in the IRC from 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m., was organized by Laurie Sutherland, who is working with Dan Gleason to promote authorship among staff and faculty, and Jean Bigger, IRC Technical Services Supervisor. Cath Veal, IMSA’s President, Branson Lawrence, IMSA’s Principal and Dan Gleason, IMSA’s Director of Academic Programs, all briefly spoke to laud the authors.

IMG_0041Throughout the year, as their books have been published, Laurie Sutherland and Jean Bigger have planned launch parties for the authors in the IRC. Today, all the authors were gathered and feted, celebrating a productive writing year.
