All of the members of ALABI are undoubtedly familiar with Kathy Sylvest. Over the years, she has been a friend to many of us, and she played an integral part in the development of both SBLA and ALABI. Taffey Hall of SBHLA asked that we post the following notice of Kathy’s retirement.
Kathy Sylvest retired at the end of April as Librarian for the Southern Baptist Historical Library and Archives. SBHLA staff honored her with a reception on Tuesday, April 29 in the Parlor of the Southern Baptist Convention Building. Kathy has worked with the Louisiana Baptist Convention, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, and the SBHLA. She had a fall at home in late February and spent several weeks in the hospital and rehab. The SBHLA staff wishes Kathy well in this new chapter of her life.
If anyone would like to drop Kathy a line, please email Bill Sumners to obtain her contact information.
