We'll honor selected JFK University community members at a dessert reception with a certificate of recognition. Additionally, the list of contributions will be available at the celebration and on the JFK University Libraries website. Works owned by the Libraries will be on display at the Robert M. Fisher Library. You are invited to submit your work!
