|Tom Forsythe is counting down to retirement and enjoying his honor as Penn Valley employee of the month.|
"For almost 32 years, Tom has been the heartbeat of the Penn Valley Library," says Scot Phillips, co-worker. "His thorough knowledge of both library and general MCC matters has been of great service to countless students. He is an invaluable resource that will be impossible to replace."
Phillips describes Forsythe as an intelligent and caring. "He makes you feel appreciated, whether it be as a co-worker or a student. He takes a real interest in what is going on in your life and goes out of his way to treat everyone he comes in contact with in the library as a friend."
