Background: For years the American Library Association has created eye-catching posters featuring well-known actors, actresses, authors, inventors, musicians, comedians, athletes and others who encourage people to READ. Maybe you’ve seen one featuring Taylor Swift, Drew Brees, or Hugh Jackman.

Genesee Community College is proud to promote faculty and staff who are published authors with a new set of READ posters featuring them. The community is invited to celebrate GCC authors as the posters are revealed during a reception THIS Thursday, January 22, 2015 at 1 p.m. in the Alfred C. O’Connell Library on the GCC Batavia campus. Refreshments will be served.

Among those who are featured on GCC’s posters are Biology professors Marirose Ethington, Gary Glaser, Karen Huffman-Kelly and Dave Johnson; Information Technology program director Jim Bucki; transitional studies director Tom Priester; Social Sciences Director Tim Tomczak; Dansville Campus Center History instructor Kirk House; former Development and External Affairs Clerk Typist Pam Reed; and BEST Center instructor Max Szemplenski.

“We’re excited to highlight our terrific faculty and staff with these READ posters,” said Cindy Hagelberger, reference librarian at GCC and project organizer. “It’s nice to shine the spotlight on local people and highlight the great work being done here at GCC that the community may not be aware of.”

The project was funded by GCC’s Academic Innovations Committee.
