Janie B. Flores, Pioneer High School Librarian
Janie B. Flores, Pioneer High School Librarian, was selected as one of
three recipients of the Junior Library Guild's Diversity and Inclusion
TLA Stipend Award. She will receive $500 to help defray the expenses of
attending the Texas Library Association Conference in Austin this April.
According to a recommendation letter, " Mrs. Flores has always had a
passion and determination to assist the underdog. Whether in the reading
classroom or later when she became an elementary librarian(and now a
high school librarian). She looks for ways to get the quiet students
engaged. She has a keen sense of observation and a gift for
conversation. Maybe her best quality for being able to pull students on
the fringe of academic success into the spotlight is her ability to
listen." Congratulations Mrs. Flores!
