Allen Tate is the I.T. “go to” guy for Ohio Township Public Library System.
You may not see him, but he is behind the scenes working for the library. If the computers go down then you will probably see him. I was able to get the following information by emailing Allen, and I found out some pretty interesting information about our I.T. guy!
Allen went to Union County High School in Morganfield, KY. He graduated in1988. He graduated from University of Southern Indiana in December of 2006 after 10 years of night classes. Before starting college, Allen was in the US Air Force, spending 2 years in Germany and 4 years in Colorado.
Allen is married to a wonderful, loving and giving Hoosier girl! He has been married for 17 years! He has one son who he says is a “real good kid and is turning into a nice young man.” Allen is a very proud papa!
I asked how long Allen had worked for the Ohio Township Public Library. He told me just a hair over 14 years. You might run into Allen at his favorite restaurant: Logan’s Roadhouse. Allen’s favorite author is John Grisham. Allen’s favorite movie is Lethal Weapon 2.
Did you know that Allen plays in a band? He plays the bass guitar, and he also sings. He plays for the band Chowder Monkey. They like to play wherever there is a place that is brave enough to let them play.
The favorite vacation spot for our I.T. guy is Panama City Beach, FL. (He says “aka, The Redneck Riviera!”)
Next time you see someone working on one of our computers, chances are it will be Allen. Be sure and say “hello” to him.
