Congratulations to ACRL-OR/WA 2019 Scholarship Winners!

Congratulations to Katherine McDonald and Tova Johnson who both recently received $155.00 scholarships from the ACRL-OR scholarship committee to cover registration costs for the 2019 ACRL-Oregon and Washington Joint Fall Conference. The conference is October 24-25, 2019 at the Pack Forest Conference Center in Eatonville, WA. The scholarship is designed for those who live and/or work in Oregon and more information can be found on the ACRL-OR Scholarships page.

Katherine is an MLIS student living in Clatsop County, Oregon. She volunteers as a tutor for Clatsop Community College’s literacy program, focusing on ESL (English as a Second Language) adult students. Katherine works to improve the dialogue and understanding towards the marginalized demographics of Clatsop County.

Tova is a Health Sciences librarian at OHSU (Oregon Health & Science University). She is looking forward to this conference because it addresses racism in academic libraries. Tova works to make academic libraries more diverse, inclusive and equitable for all.
