2017 SIS FLA Scholarships Winners

posted Apr 17, 2017, 7:20 PM by Betsy King   [ updated Apr 17, 2017, 7:30 PM ]

We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2017 SIS FLA Scholarships.  We have awarded two student scholarships and one librarian/staff scholarship to attend the 2017 FLA Conference in Orlando, FL (May 10-12). Student Winners are Adam Berkowitz (USF) and Arlene Haessler (USF). The Librarian/Library Staff Winner is Amanda Moldan, Seminole County Public Library. All of the applicants showed a strong commitment towards the library profession. Each scholarship will be for $200.00 to cover conference-related expenses.  With these scholarships we are supporting the professional activities and learning opportunities for both students who will soon be working as professional librarians and those already in the profession. After the conference, awardees will write about their experiences in an upcoming SIS newsletter. We look forward to their reports.  A special thanks to Hal Harmon, William Harris, and Samantha Trinh, who served on the Scholarship Committee, and to the SIS Board. Without their help, this program would not be a success. Again, congratulations to Adam, Arlene, and Amanda.  From Hal Harmon, SIS Scholarship Committee
