Librarian Amy Paster honored for community service

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Librarian Amy Paster, head of the Life Sciences Library, within Penn State's University Libraries, was among the group of 42 individuals honored for community service at the 41st annual Rose Cologne Volunteer Recognition Dinner. The event takes its name from the first Volunteer of the Year award winner, Rose Cologne, in April 1973. Each of the agencies of the Centre County Council for Human Services Inc. nominated at least one volunteer.

Paster, a seven-year cancer survivor, has dedicated each of those years to the Cancer Survivors' Association, serving as the chairwoman of the fundraising committee and as a Relay for Life participant. Paster noted, "The Cancer Survivors' Association is a support community offering Centre County residents living with cancer encouragement and an opportunity to learn skills, gather information and meet social and emotional needs."
