Coming to the area about the same time as Micky, Patty Buelt grew up a military brat as one of 11 children with an identical twin sister. Having played “library” as a little girl, Patty went on to earn a Master of Library and Information Science Degree and a Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership with a Specialization in Information Technology. As with the many other college employees, Patty says she has never worked with so many happy and caring people. “When I first came to work here I was immediately impressed with the dedication to the students as well as community members exhibited by the faculty and staff members. If you are out and about, you may spot Patty “runalking,” as her daughter calls it. Patty explains that it is a mash-up of running and walking. Of course she loves to read, non-fiction being her favorite, working in her yard and watching British television shows.
