2018 Dick Mayo Allen Scholarship Awarded

Julie George and Tyler Busby

Eastern Kentucky University Libraries presented the 2018 Dick Mayo Allen scholarship to Tyler Busby on August 19.   Busby has been working for the Technology & Data Services Team (Tech Team) at EKU Libraries for two years. His primary responsibility is to ensure that the high-level of customer service provided by the Tech Team during the daytime hours is also available at night. He answers technology-related questions, images library computers, sets up technology for events, among other responsibilities. "I nominated Tyler for the Dick Mayo Allen Award because from when I hired him until now, he has grown as a student employee and is always willing to take extra steps to help students, faculty, and staff," says Jamie Haddix, his supervisor. Tyler will graduate in 2020 with a B.S. in Mathematics.

The Dick Mayo Allen Award is presented each year to honor an outstanding EKU Libraries' student employee. The Award includes a $500 scholarship and a plaque.
