Mrs. O’Hare Honored With Betty Roemmelmeyer Advocate Award
Mrs. Ann O’Hare was recognized today as a leader in the field of bibliophilic joy. As a part of the Spring Festival of Children’s Literature at Frostburg State University, Mrs. O’Hare was awarded the Betty Roemmelmeyer Advocate Award.
Mrs. O’Hare has been a fixture at Saint Matthias since 1993, serving in a number of roles, but always focused on student learning, specifically as life-long readers!
Mrs. O’Hare is pictured here with Dr. Bingman (former Frostburg reading professor), Ms. Phelps (former student, now colleague), and the featured authors at this year’s Children’s Literature Festival.
The Betty Roemmelmeyer Advocate Award is given to a teacher, librarian, or other advocate who exhibits a love of children’s literature and strives to share it with others.
Way to go, everyday, Mrs. O’Hare!
