The Development Committee congratulates Jan Blodgett of Davidson College as the recipient of the Thornton W. Mitchell Service Award. She has been the archivist at Davidson College for over 20 years. Active in SNCA as past president and chair of multiple committees, she has also served as editor of J-SNCA. In addition to her SNCA contributions, she has filled the role of mentor, reached out to lone arrangers and first-time conference attendees, and encouraged archivists to serve on committees. She has been described as displaying inclusiveness “before it was a buzzword” throughout her career, has encouraged colleagues to participate in leadership roles, and has made a wide-ranging impact on the archives profession in North Carolina.
