Gwinnett County Public Schools has named Steven Blagg its 2023-24 Media Clerk of the Year. 
 
The award recognizes a media clerk who, through individual leadership and sustained effort, has made exceptional contributions to the operations of effective school library programs. 
 
Blagg, who works at Osborne Middle School, enjoys connecting with students, which he believes helps foster a love for learning and exploration, according to a release from the school system.
 
“I always greet students with a warm smile and engage them in conversation about the book they are reading,” Blagg said. 
 
The system said that in addition to fulfilling everyday responsibilities, Blagg highlights books and events with displays, updates the student web app, assists teachers with instructional needs, and partners with parent volunteers.
 
 Blagg emphasized he enjoys the daily interactions with all patrons and the sense of family at Osborne Middle School.
 
 “It is rewarding when students tell me that the media center is their favorite spot in the school,” he said. 
 
  Deborah Mosley, the library media specialist at Osborne Middle, nominated Blagg. 
 
“Steven is an asset to the media center and the entire school,” Mosley said. “He is open and accepting of everyone who walks through the door and has built a rapport with the entire school community. He is irreplaceable.” 
 
Blagg expressed gratitude for the opportunity to work with students and staff. 
 
“I want to exceed the expectations of our teachers and staff by providing the resources they need to best support teaching and learning,” he said. “And to be acknowledged with this award is a reminder that my role is valued and important.”
