Maddie Horvath & Amie Ha Recognized for Library Service

The Library is proud to recognize two of our finest student employees. A junior from Boothwyn, Pa., Madeline (Maddie) Horvath, was selected as the student employee of the month for her exemplary service during October. We also recognize Amie Ha for outstanding library service as student employee of the month in November.

Maddie Horvath

Maddie started her library career in August 2009, her freshman year. Phylis Wright, manager of access desk services, says, “Maddie is a student whose quiet nature speaks volumes. Her attention to detail allows the full-time staff the confidence to work seamlessly. She is focused and talented: just all around wonderful!”

Maddie is a communication major with a public relations specialization. She plans to pursue a career in social media consulting. Social media is also her hobby.

She is captain of the Villanova Twirlers, a group which performs with the Villanova Band at football and basketball games. The Twirlers also performed for the 2011 Special Olympics Pennsylvania Fall Festival on campus.

Joanne Quinn, Falvey’s design specialist, created a caricature of Maddie, which is displayed on the pillar behind the library service counter. Check it out!


Amie Ha

Phylis Wright, access services desk manager, announced that Amie Ha is the Falvey student employee of the month, based on her dependable service in November. Wright says, “Amie is a dedicated student employee who has covered many shifts. Her willingness to give up her free time has allowed her fellow students to complete their required assignments and [has] given the staff the added security of knowing the open shifts will be covered by a seasoned assistant. She is pleasant and punctual, two wonderful qualities.”

Amie, a sophomore art history major, is from New York City. Her hobbies are varied: traveling, writing, doodling and listening to creative music. Ha states, “I appreciate beautiful architecture, swanky poetry and good comedy.”

Joanne Quinn, Falvey’s design specialist, will create a caricature of Amie Ha, which will be displayed on the pillar behind the main service desk.

The University Staff Council at Falvey selects a student employee of the month based upon nominations from the departmental student supervisors.
