The Alexandria Campus community wished a very fond farewell to Library Specialist Marion Mirehouse after 36 years of service to the College.
Marion's primary responsibilities lay with the print periodical collection (and all of the association upheaval with the increasing and ongoing transition to digital sources). Throughout her career she was also active at the campus and college level with such organizations as the VCCA and the (various iterations of) the campus environmental/green/conservation committee.
The Library also benefitted from Marion's green thumb: She was the horticultural genius behind the plant life that is so prominent in the reading rooms.

Marion will be much missed by staff, faculty and students alike!
