Congratulations to Daphne Miyashiro who is this year’s recipient of the Hawaii Association of School Librarians (H.A.S.L.) Scholarship. Daphne has been enrolled in the LIS Program since spring 2012. She currently also works as a student administrative assistant at Hamilton Library. In the fall, she will be doing her practicum at Farrington High School with Julie Tomomitsu. Daphne has been actively engaged in numerous library-related activities. She assisted Castle High School Library with their reading program and has volunteered at various Friends of the Library book sales. She is treasurer for the Student Chapter of ALA.
This year’s scholarship is particularly meaningful, as it was partly funded by donations made to H.A.S.L. in honor of Dr. Violet Harada upon her retirement.
