Katie Hart was awarded FLY's (Future Leaders of Yale) first 'Visionary' award on June 17, 2019 in a ceremony recognizing early career professionals at Yale. Katie, CWML's Senior Administrative Assistant, was nominated by Bob Hughes for her exceptional leadership and foresight, especially during this past year's renovation.
Well before the start of construction, Katie took the initiative to develop a plan for relocating all of the library’s furniture. She compiled a list of every item that could be impacted by the project and categorized them. She then oversaw all of the move. As the Library’s point person, she coordinated with staff, patrons, and construction crew both directly and through online communications. To quote her nominator, “This was, by far, the medical library’s largest construction project in many, many years, and it all went without a hitch because Katie had the foresight to develop her game plan well ahead of time.”
