“Sharon has a lot of qualities that make her a great supervisor, but one that stands out to me is that she allows each of us to use our unique combination of skills and interests to come up with projects that improve Library services. Working on projects that we really care about motivates us to go the extra mile, and Sharon does everything possible to support us along the way. She also actively fosters collaboration, so we know that if we ever need help there are other people who will happily lend a hand.”
Sharon also knows everything about dog adoption, rescue and training. As a member of multiple dog rescue groups (all breads of setters, plus Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.) Sharon has saved the lives of dozens of dogs, fostering and re-homing dogs over 13 years.
“Ivy Tech Community College is fortunate to have Sharon Hultquist as an employee, Ivy Tech students are lucky to have her as an advocate, and we library staff members are blessed to have her as our boss. The only thing greater than Sharon’s knowledge of available resources is her desire to make sure people get the materials they need to do their best. Sharon is a dedicated and tireless champion of both humans and canines!”
Outside of the library Sharon loves reading, walking her three dogs (Fanny, Cam and Bop), chatting with friends, playing with her four-year-old twin granddaughters (Lilly and Isabella), travel (especially in the mountains) and flower gardening. She also collects fairies and everything about setters.
“Sharon has a willingness to pursue options that are not normally associated with academic libraries but that better serve our students or faculty, such as our large children’s lit collection.”
