ESE, Inc. CEO Eric Simmons met today with two of Alabama’s leading Librarians, Auburn University Libraries’ Interim Dean Nancy Noe and Juanita Owes, Head Librarian for the Montgomery City-County Library System. Simmons made the trip to Auburn to sign the University’s copy of his Memoir, “Not Far From The Tree,“ and to Montgomery to sign the System’s 4 copies. “I had an incredible time with Dean Noe and Ms. Owes. It felt like I had known Dean Noe my entire life. I didn’t want to leave her! Then I got to Montgomery, and when I met Ms. Owes, she seemed like Family. To my amazement, she knew my Dad during his time as Dean of the School of Music at Alabama State. We had a great chat! Both Librarians have invited me back, and I will be accommodating them!” said Simmons.
