Lori Bervoets

School Librarian

Ms. Bervoets is a lifelong Bobcat, graduating from JOHS in 1983.  She also graduated from UT Knoxville (Go Big Orange!) and has a collection of graduate degrees, including a J.D. from Nashville School of Law -- because she’s a nerd.  She worked as an elementary librarian for almost 15 years before transitioning to high school.  She loves reading (especially romantic comedy and non-fiction), listening to music (especially live and outdoors!), laughing (all the time!), and using exclamation points!!!!

Rachel Davis

Library Clerk

Ms. Davis graduated in 2015 from the University of Tennessee – Knoxville with a Bachelor's degree in English.  She could spend hours browsing the stacks at Rhino Books or McKay’s and has accumulated so many titles that she’s run out of shelf space.  Her favorite genres include science fiction, dystopian, and fantasy.  In her spare time, she likes to play bass & guitar, draw, listen to true crime podcasts, and eat at Las Palmas.
