ACRL Oregon is delighted to announce the winners of scholarships to attend the ACRL Oregon and Washington Joint Fall Conference at Menucha next month. Through the generosity of our two keynote speakers, Lauren Pressley and Hannah Gascho Rempel (who donated their speaker fees to the scholarship fund), we were able to cover registration for eight attendees. They are:

  • Aja Bettencourt-McCarthy (first-time attendee and ACRL OR member)
  • Tatiana Bryant (first-time attendee and ACRL OR member)
  • Mary C. Derr (first-time attendee, ACRL OR member, and library school student)
  • Linden How (first-time attendee, library school student, and PNCA support staff)
  • Kerry Leek (first-time attendee and part-time librarian at Clackamas Community College)
  • Kim Olson-Charles (first-time attendee and ACRL OR member)
  • Gabriela Martinez Mercier (first-time attendee, ACRL OR member, and Columbia Gorge Community College support staff)
  • Sheila Shapiro (first-time attendee, ACRL OR member, and library school student)

We are especially excited that three of the winners (Tatiana Bryant, Kerry Leek, and Gabriela Martinez Mercier) will present posters at the conference.  And we also are pleased that another winner, Aja Bettencourt-McCarthy, has just recently joined the ACRL-Oregon Board.  Congratulations to all and looking forward to a great conference!
