However, the presentation was not yet complete. In a surprise to Jon, Library Board Chairman Mary Helen McGruder announced that the library’s administration building would be named the Jon McDaniel Administration Building. When she unveiled the plaque, the Commissioners extended their gratitude to Jon and the audience gave him a second standing ovation.
Congratulations, Jon, on these well-deserved honors.
