2014 Outstanding Staff Member
Barbara McKibbin, dean of Learning Resources, is the 2014 Outstanding Staff Member Award recipient. McKibbin has served at the College for 23 years and began her career as the Director of Library Services. Since that time, she has also served as Library Director. McKibbin earned a Master’s degree in library science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Gardner-Webb University.
McKibbin is currently serving as president of the North Carolina Community College Learning Resources Association and says, “I was honored to be considered for this award as I see the hard work and dedication of so many of the employees of Cleveland Community College who are also deserving of the recognition. I love working at Cleveland, and particularly in the Rose Library because I constantly see how our efforts make a difference for students. It is very gratifying to be recognized for what I do, but what we have accomplished in the Library and Learning Resources Department is a result of a team effort,” she adds.
McKibbin and her husband, Barry, reside in the small community of Delight in upper Cleveland County.
