Pat Stephenson is a Rochester Public Schools employee who is also a valued volunteer for the Friends, both in the Bookstore and as a sorter. In addition to her volunteer hours in the library, Pat is also the liaison for our outreach programs at Channel One, Gift of Life Transplant House, and many other programs. This spring Pat was nominated for the Rochester Education Association Human Relations Award, and she was announced as the winner at Bamber Valley (her school) on Thursday, May 5. The Bamber Valley staff honored Pat with a crown, gold cape, flowers, and a song specially written for the occasion – “The Community of Bookwomen.” We congratulate Pat on her award; the REA could not have chosen a better or more deserving recipient for their Human Relations Award!
