Joey Rodger Honored With ULC Leadership Endowment

By LJ Staff

Joey Rodger, recently departed president of the Urban Libraries Council (ULC), has been honored with a leadership endowment that will provide leadership training each year to a library professional. She left ULC after 11 years to become executive director of the Pendle Hill Peace Network. “Joey’s great gift to the ULC has been her extraordinary leadership,” said Donna Nicely, director of the Nashville Public Library and chair of the ULC Executive Board. “We could think of no better way to honor her legacy than to prepare other professionals for leadership in our industry.” Organizers of the fund have collected some $43,000 toward a goal of $100,000 to establish the endowment.
