Scholarships to Attend 2013 FLA Conference, May 1-3.


We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2013 SIS FLA Scholarships. We have awarded four student scholarships to attend the conference.

  • Roxana Grinov, USF
  • Marisa Meale, USF
  • Jessica Szempruch, USF
  • Aileen Valdes, USF

All of the applicants showed a strong commitment toward the library profession.
Each scholarship will be for $150.00 so that students can cover conference-related expenses.

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

This is the sixth year that SIS has provided the financial support for this very important project.  With these scholarships, we are supporting professional activities and learning opportunities for students who will soon be working as professional librarians.

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

Again, congratulations to Roxana, Marisa, Jessica and Aileen.  If you are attending FLA please look for these students, say hello, and welcome them to our wonderful profession.

Jessica Riggins, Scholarship Committee Chair
