At the TLA Conference this past week, Pat received the TLA Distinguished Service Award. We are so proud of her! This award recognizes substantial demonstration of leadership to the profession. For over 30 years, Patricia Tuohy has provided outstanding leadership for the Central Texas Library System, a system that has grown from 37 to 80 libraries during her tenure. She has also held a number of diverse TLA responsibilities, most notably serving as the Local Arrangements chair for Legislative Day in Austin since it began in the 1980s. Congratulations, Pat, for this well-deserved recognition!
