The Hawaiʻi Association of School Librarians (HASL) is pleased to award this year’s student scholarship to Malia Quiocho. Quiocho is a student in the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa’s Library & Information Science program, completing her MLISc courses via its online platform.
Quiocho holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education, and a Master’s in Education from Chaminade University. Currently, she is the school librarian at Seabury Hall on Maui, succeeding Linda Lindsey who retired last year.
What drives her?
“Information access is a passion for me,” says Quiocho. “Working with other teachers to develop and collaborate with their instruction toward excellence in learning experiences, seeking innovation, and taking risks.”
A devoted educator, Quiocho comes highly recommended by her instructors and mentors in the library community. Please join us in congratulating her.
