Gamble will graduate in May 2016 with a B.S. in Communication Disorders, completing her degree in only three years.

According to her supervisor Doug Wiles, Gamble has worked as a Stacks Management student for two-and-a-half years. “During that time, I have noted Katie’s motivation to be exceptional in every endeavor: academic, work-related, and personal,” Wiles said. “Katie has been a leader in several projects, including a significant transition for Stacks Management to staff the Helm Information Desk.”

Gamble has performed at a superior level academically, maintaining a 4.0 grade-point average while working in WKU Libraries and volunteering in the Kelly Autism Program. In addition, she was the first student employee to serve on the WKU Campus Library Advisory Council.

“I take pride in telling people that I am a WKU Libraries Student Assistant and am very thankful for the opportunity to work here,” Gamble said. “I can genuinely say that being a student assistant has strengthened my time management skills and has made me more independent.”

Gamble was recognized at a reception on Wednesday (Dec. 9) in Cravens Library. The scholarship is sponsored through funding from the Friends of WKU Libraries. For more information on the Friends program, go to www.wku.edu/library and click on “Support Us.”
