Collins Hill High School’s media specialist Holly Frilot talks with a student in the media center. Frilot was recently named the district’s medial specialist of the year.
SUWANEE -- Holly Frilot said she loves her job.
As library media specialist at Collins Hill High School, Frilot spends her days helping students of all reading levels and assisting adults at the school understand the value of technology in the classroom.
Her bosses think she's doing a pretty good job. She was recognized recently as the 2012 Gwinnett County Public Schools Library Media Specialist of the Year.
"I love my job," Frilot said. "At the Collins Hill High School Media Center, we are passionate about the comprehensive education of students through books, technology and dynamic teaching."
Frilot said she "delight(s) in how varied my day is ... one minute I'm helping a reluctant reader find a book that gets them hooked on reading, the next I'm wracking my brain to help the student who's read more books in the library than I have."
She was named Gwinnett's library media specialist of the year for her contributions in the library media field through service to students, teachers and the community.
Selection for the honor by the school system library media committee is based on an individual's promotion of reading and literature, his or her leadership role and the work completed to involve parents and community members as partners. Parents, teachers and administrators are invited every year to nominate a media specialist for the countywide honor.
