Caroline Lee, an LIS student, has received the Faith C. Ai Memorial Scholarship. Caroline will be using the $5,000 award toward her tuition. She thanks the interview panel and board for selecting her. She said:
Teaching high school students have been tremendously rewarding and dedicating my life to my school and students has left me with absolutely zero regrets. Trying to balance full time teaching, multiple school related organizations, motherhood and graduate school has been a daunting task. However, the LIS graduate program has been one of the best professional experiences of my life and I can only hope to show my gratitude by my continued commitment to serving our community as a future librarian and educator.
This scholarship is dedicated to Faith C. Ai (1915-1997), who was a teacher, administrator, and a community volunteer who dedicated her life to public education. The scholarship is awarded to deserving students currently enrolled in an accredited American college or university who are undergraduates majoring in Education, graduate students intending to teach, or certified teachers who are pursuing graduate degrees.
