Alumna Adela Justice, on the Legacy of Dr. Yvonne Chandler (1957-2020) and Future of the LIS Profession

When she started graduate school, Adela Justice, AHIP, was a reserved person, but Dr. Yvonne Chandler brought her out of her shell. Adela gigged as a violist with the Denton Community Orchestra while finishing her B.A. in music at UNT. But when a hand injury sidelined her music career, she had to find a plan B. “That’s when my mom sent me a newspaper article about the information superhighway,” she recalls.  So, Adela took a chance on information science at UNT. She applied for graduate work-study and received a teaching assistantship with Dr. Chandler.
