Donna Scheeder and Barbara Semonche Honored with 2009 SLA Hall of Fame Award

News Division ‘Legends’ Honored for Lifetime of Work on Behalf of Profession and SLA

SLA named Donna Scheeder and Barbara Semonche as the 2009 recipients of the SLA Hall of Fame award in honor of their pioneering work in the field of news librarianship and their prolonged and distinguished histories of service and leadership to SLA. Hall of Fame recognition is reserved for SLA members at or near the end of their active professional careers to recognize service and contributions to the association.

“The names Barbara Semonche and Donna Scheeder have been synonymous with mentorship, service, and leadership in this profession for many years,” said Gloria Zamora, 2010 past president of SLA. “Their contributions to this association have had a lasting impact on so many.  From young emerging leaders to former presidents and board members to their colleagues in the SLA News Division and their local chapters, one would be hard pressed to find an SLA member who hasn’t been touched in some way by either of these amazing professionals. Barbara and Donna are so deserving of this award, and I am so pleased that we are able to honor them in this way.”
