Col. Lisa Price, deputy commander for training, presents a Certificate of Achievement to Stephanie Fulton, library technician, CW2 Christopher G. Nason Military Intelligence Library, at the Instructor Resource Center opening ceremony on Wednesday in O’Neil Hall.

After three years of planning, the Fort Huachuca Military Intelligence Staff and Faculty Development Division held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at O’Neil Hall to celebrate the grand opening of the Instructor Resource Center, or IRC, on Wednesday.

As an extension of the CW2 Christopher G. Nason Military Intelligence Library, the IRC is a multi-use room dedicated to assisting instructors in their professional development.

Beth Leeder, chief, Staff and Faculty Development Division, was the lead facilitator in the organization of the IRC.

“Prior to it’s opening, the resources that were available to instructors were very minimal. This branch gives the U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Education [and Fort Huachuca] the opportunity to build a library of timely, useful resource materials,” she said.

According to Leeder, customers may check out materials using a card system in the back of the books, and the check-out period is four weeks. Signs with instructions are posted throughout the resource center.

In addition to the books, workbooks, DVDs and study guides that are available, there is a reading corner to peruse the resource of choice, computers for instructor use and tables to spread out larger projects. The available space is ideal for those who need to get away from the distractions of their work area or for a quiet place to meet with students or clients.

Col. Lisa Price, deputy commander for training, opened the event by expressing her gratitude to Leeder and all those who helped make the vision a reality.

Stephanie Fulton, a MI Library technician, was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation by Price, in recognition of her arduous efforts and assistance in preparation of the IRC opening.

“Stephanie spent a number of hours cataloging and making sure that all of the materials were pulled together … I appreciate that as much as the Soldiers do, so thank you very much,” Price said.

After the ribbon-cutting, cake was served and attendees mingled, speaking about the opportunities the IRC can offer and viewing the variety of available resources.

Marilyn Willis-Grider, deputy director of the Training and Doctrine Command Culture Center, said, “I think [the Instructor Resource Center] is fantastic. Everyone that works for me is an instructor or trainer, and it is fantastic to have another resource for them to use.”

The IRC is available to everyone on Fort Huachuca. It is located in O’Neil Hall, Building 61809, Room 224. Business hours are Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. – 4 p.m. For more information, call 538.1128.
