Hilary Jones - The Stars at KLIC: Journey Story of our Staff
By Hilary Jones
My journey to working in the Chattanooga State library started in 2008. When I graduated from high school, I received an academic scholarship that paid for me to go to school as long as I maintained a minimum of a 2.5 GPA and worked 75 hours on campus. I immediately knew I wanted to work in the library. My mom works in the library so I knew that it was a great environment.
I worked as a student assistant for three years until I graduated with my Associates of Science degree, then I started working at Valleybrook Golf and Country Club as their Administrative Assistant. I worked there for two years until the golf course was sold.
After staying home with my daughter for a few months, a full time position opened up in the library. I applied for the job and I got it! I absolutely love my job. Very few people can say they enjoy waking up every morning and coming in to work, but I’m proud to say I’m one of those people.
