Staff Member of the Month: Ian Boucher
“I tremendously enjoy being part of the Wesleyan College community. With my background in TV, working for the cause of information and media literacy is very important to me, and Pearsall Library is a wonderful atmosphere of proactivity and innovation. It’s a true privilege to be able to serve students and be there for them as much as I can, whether they need to find the best resources for a project or just want to talk movies. Even in my brief time at Wesleyan, I have already seen them grow as individuals. I couldn’t ask anything more from where I work.”
Ian is the Evening Supervisor at Pearsall Library. Before Wesleyan, Ian was a video editor for WNCT in Greenville, and before that he worked for WQED and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, PA.
