M.Ed., Library and Information Studies
Hometown: Greensboro, NC
Sangster Parrott Library Science Fellow

 

“I will expand my knowledge and perception of what it means to be a librarian in the 21st century.”

Because of this scholarship, I will be able to commit fully to the study and practice of Library Science by simultaneously working directly in the library field, regardless of the rate of financial compensation. I will expand my knowledge and perception of what it means to be a librarian in the 21st century and, under the excellent tutelage of the UNCG LIS department, resolve exactly where my skill set fits in the library profession.

I truly believe that free and easy access to knowledge and media resources is the cornerstone of the democracy and freedoms we enjoy in this country, and hope to use your financial gift and this belief as the foundation of whatever path I choose to pursue in this field. I know that UNCG will equip me with all the necessary skills required to make meaningful contributions to this field. This would not have been possible without your contribution.
