SLA Biomedical and Life Sciences Division

2006 Chair's Recognition Award

John Tebo

John Tebo, Head, Chemistry-Biology Library at the University of Cincinnati, was awarded the 2006 Chair’s Recognition Award on June 13, 2006, at the SLA Annual Conference in Baltimore, Maryland. As Chair of the 2006 Division Program Planning Committee, he undertook the hardest job in the Division. He knew how to delegate the work of his committee, which is essential to a successful program. John claims that he relied on Janet Weiss for everything. While Janet is an excellent mentor and advisor, John is just too modest. He coordinated with more divisions than in past years to create visionary programming for the SLA Program Committee while still balancing the full program schedule of the Division into the program grid. John showed that he had the needed tenacity, dedication and organization skills to lead a successful program committee. Our Division and the entire SLA community that attended the 2006 conference and our programs benefited from John Tebo’s leadership and generous service. Thank you, John, for another wonderful year of interesting, thought-provoking, and fun conference programming and events.
