It was an honor to present Terry Matava with the 2013 employee of the year award. Indeed, as a team player, Terry always takes the extra step and makes the extra effort to support her colleagues in the day-to-day operations of the libraries. Terry is a highly valued employee who significantly makes a difference in the atmosphere of Farmington’s libraries. Her peers selected Terry because they enjoy her professional and personal wit and sense of purpose. I am very happy to be surrounded by a wonderful, smart and interesting team of professionals all purposed to provide the best service to the best population in the world; the people of Farmington Connecticut.
