If you are from the tri-state area tune into channel 9 at 9pm on Friday to see Miss Arnice who was honored as a Everyday Freedom Heroes at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in November.
Arnice Smith is a College Hill children’s librarian who holds after-school study sessions for at-risk students. “I don’t think of myself as a hero,” says Smith, a mother of two who lives in Cheviot. “Because for me, this is what I’m supposed to be doing.”
The photo that is running with the article, TV special lauds ‘Heroes’, is from a couple years ago when Miss Arnice was one of 27 U.S. public librarians to receive the New York Times’ Librarian Award for community service. So I’ve gotten to work with Miss Heidi the Academy Awards replica dress maker and Miss Arnice a s-hero!
