HOT, NEW AND TIMELY

May 7, 2009

Retired administrators honored

Two dedications adorn the Library grounds to honor two recently-retired administrators—Carol Pelz and Deborah Kackley.

CAROL PELZ

A privately-donated steel sculpture has been erected outside the northwest corner of the Library to honor Carol Pelz, who retired in July 2008 after nearly 23 years as Director.

Pelz left a rich legacy of progressive leadership, innovative advances, and collaboration, establishing a unique reputation for the Library. (Read more about
Pelz's accomplishments.)

The work was purchased at A Muse Gallery (996 W. Third Ave.) and was created by Russell Whiting. (Another Whiting sculpture was erected near the Library's front doors in 2006 in memory of Sharon Voelker, Library Board Trustee for 22 years.) 

A plaque below the sculpture reads: "In gratitude for the leadership, vision and dedication of Carol Pelz, Director of the Grandview Library, 1985-2008."

DEBORAH KACKLEY

A Silver Linden tree has been planted in honor of Deborah Kackley, who retired in November 2008 after nearly 23 years as Fiscal Officer.

Kackley provided wise financial guidance and managed building operations & improvements that created the Library's
exceptional appearance & reputation. (Read more about Kackley's accomplishments.)

A plaque below the tree reads: "In honor of Deborah Kackley, Grandview Library's Fiscal Officer, 1986-2008, whose care for the Library showed inside & out."

We extend our gratitude and best wishes to these outstanding administrators and great friends.
