Her passion for TEL extends beyond campus and into the community. She’s provided training for the staff of other libraries, fellow church goers, and even the children of Chattanooga College students. Just this past year, she’s logged 65 training sessions for over 1,200 attendees. Gayla’s enthusiasm is a tremendous blessing to the Tennessee Electronic Library.
