Congratulations to the 2024 Thornton W. Mitchell Service Award recipient!

SNCA’s Development Committee is honored to announce Martha Elmore as the recipient of the Thornton W. Mitchell Service Award!

Martha has served in Special Collections at East Carolina University’s Joyner Library for over 40 years. She began her service in 1976 as a student worker. Martha currently serves as the Manuscript Archivist for the East Carolina Manuscript Collection, where she has played a vital role in preserving the history of eastern North Carolina through fostering relationships with donors and through personally donating and curating several collections and items. Martha’s nominator also notes that she has “consistently served the archival profession…as a mentor, colleague, and friend for many archivists and cultural heritage workers throughout her time at ECU.”

Martha will be recognized at the conference in April.

The Thornton W. Mitchell Service Award recognizes an individual who has demonstrated outstanding service to the archival profession in the state of North Carolina.  Nominations for next year’s award will be accepted next spring. Watch the SNCA blog and listserv for announcements.
