 Regardless of your experience in high school, you may be eligible for the RSS Honor Roll.

 The RSS has an Honor Roll that gives recognition to active RSS members who have served the section in three different capacities since its inception. If you have been a member of three or more committees or discussion groups since RSS was established in 2004 and have not previously been added to the honor roll, please send your name and a list of the three ways you have served RSS to Susan Ware at saw4@psu.edu .

Not only will you become a member of this esteemed group, you will also be recognized at ALA Annual in Anaheim!

If you want to find out which honored colleagues you will be joining, go to http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/rusa/sections/rss/honoroll.cfm for the list of RSS Honor Roll Members.
