Angela’s contribution rises above the rest. She performed with professionalism, attention to detail, initiative and grace. 

Counsellor. Canadian Embassy in Washington D.C., 2006.

She can already be seen as a librarian’s librarian. I am confident that she will rise to her potential and be recognized as an effective leader in our profession for many years to come.  She certainly has the ability, intellect, dedication, and desire to do so.

Ms. Kent demonstrates initiative, strategic thinking, follow-through, and excellent communication skills. Angela demonstrated collegiality, initiative, leadership, and vision. Her ability to thoughtfully assess a situation, and to work collaboratively toward a shared vision, were crucial for the success for our work. I greatly enjoyed working with Angela.
