North Tonawanda Resident Awarded SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Librarianship (07/05/2013)

ROCHESTER, N.Y. –July 3, 2013- North Tonawanda resident Pamela Czaja, a reference-distance learning librarian at Monroe Community College (Rochester, N.Y.), is a recipient of the State University of New York (SUNY) Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Librarianship.

Czaja, who began her MCC career in 2001, thought of her late father, Chester Czaja when she was informed of the honor. “My dad was a much beloved maintenance worker at Niagara County Community College in Sanborn, N.Y., where he received an award in recognition of his service to the college. When I read the letter from SUNY Chancellor Nancy Zimpher notifying me about my award, I immediately thought: I’m carrying on my dad’s legacy of service.”

A member of MCC’s SUNY Learning Network (SLN) team, Czaja is a trainer for the Building Online Success SLN student orientation. She also serves on the Rochester Regional Library Council’s CLIC-on-Health Steering Committee and is a volunteer for the New York Online Access to Health website.

SUNY awards this distinction to professional library staff members who have demonstrated outstanding performance both within and beyond their job description.
