SIS student Sharra Rosichan is the type of person who will teach herself something that she’s interested in – such as how to write code, design websites or read maps.
She was a voracious reader at a very young age – reading before talking, and consuming chapter books by the time she was four years old, she said. It was only natural that she would later end up working for a library system and getting her degree in information sciences.
Rosichan is the system-wide programming coordinator for the Nashville Public Library Foundation, and she oversees and creates a variety of events for the area the system serves. This includes art month in October, a celebration of diversity in April, African-American history month, Hispanic heritage, a citywide read, and more. She also does statistics, data entry and program scheduling.
