The Friends of St. Thomas Public Libraries (FOSTPL) would like to encourage its members and supporters to extend warm congratulations to Susan Laura Lugo, Assistant Director and Territorial Archivist with the Division of Libraries, Archives and Museums (DLAM) at the Department of Planning and Natural Resources (DPNR), on receiving the "Rising Star Award" from the Council of State Archivists.
The Rising Star Award seeks to acknowledge the exceptional efforts of key individuals on behalf of their own state archives and communities; Susan has been a constant and faithful friend in every sense of the word, to the territory's libraries, librarians and support groups, including FOSTPL. In her professional and personal lives, she has given genuine focus to the business of historical preservation, genealogy, and the vast knowledge bases that are our libraries.
Governor John P. de Jongh, in a Government House press release, offered his congratulations and acknowledgement of her efforts: "I am very pleased that she has received this award, which also spotlights the efforts of the Territory to preserve its history and culture."
