PALA 2017-2018 Officers


President: Lauren Baker

I am a graduate student at Pratt Institute School of Information, pursuing a Master of Science in Library and Information Science and an Advanced Certificate in Archives. Prior to Pratt, I worked for six years in the marketing department at Guild Hall, a fast-paced visual and performing arts center on the East End of Long Island. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development from Cornell University College of Human Ecology. I am thrilled to be a part of PALA in order to advocate for students at the School of Information and create enriching experiences through lectures, workshops, and events. When not doing research for school, you can find me at the theater, watching comedy, or listening to podcasts. 

Vice-President: Jay Lyon

Treasurer: Kara Bledsoe

Secretary: Gracen Cloud Walter

I am currently on the Library Media Specialist track at Pratt, and I will begin student teaching in Fall 2017. This is my 2nd (and final) year! I grew up in NYC, and I went to Skidmore College for undergrad, where I majored in Education Studies. After graduating, I lived and worked in Australia for 6 months before coming back to the States for school. I am very excited to be PALA’s secretary, and I look forward to serving the Pratt community as best as I can. My hobbies include reading, singing, swimming and relaxing.
