For his outstanding accomplishments as a middle school librarian, Stephen is recognized on the Donors’ Wall of Fame by Gladys Stockwell from Neosho Rapids, Kansas.

According to Gladys:

Stephen worked all four years of college in the College of Emporia Library. He was never too busy to help a child in need and always put in extra hour of the benefit of the children. He stayed in the same library for 25 years and is still there. Stephen also takes part in community and church work. A high school librarian once commented on how well the students knew how to use the library when they came from Stephen’s middle school library.

Stephen has been a middle school librarian for 29 years and he is still teaching. He is the middle school librarian at Ellsworth County in Kanopolis, Kansas.
