Scholarships to Attend 2014 FLA Conference, May 7-9.

We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2014 SIS FLA Scholarships.  We have awarded two student scholarships and two librarian/staff scholarships to attend the conference.

  • Karlen Kane, FSU

  • Jodi Geever-Ostrowsky, USF

  • Deborah M. Williams, Keiser University

  • Jaime M. Goldman, Nova Southeastern University

All of the applicants showed a strong commitment towards the library profession. Each scholarship will be for $150.00 to cover conference-related expenses.

A special thanks to my colleagues Caroline Reed, Jessica Riggins, and Ann Marie Maloney who served on the Scholarship Committee. Without their help, this program would not be a success.

This is the 7th year that SIS has provided the financial support for this very important project.  With these scholarships we are supporting the professional activities and learning opportunities for both students who will soon be working as professional librarians ands those already in the profession.

After the conference, awardees will write about their experiences at the FLA conference in an upcoming SIS newsletter. We look forward to their reports.

Again, congratulations to Karlen, Jodi, Deborah and Jaime.  If you are attending FLA please look for these students and say hello.

Hal Harmon, Scholarship Committee Chair
