The UI Libraries is pleased to announce the first two winners of the Libraries’ Student Employee Scholarship. The selection committed was delighted to have such a strong candidate pool for the scholarship and found the final decision extremely difficult. The winners are:
- Stacy Garrard – Stacy Garrard is a freshman majoring in speech and hearing sciences. Garrard works in Special Collections where she enjoys looking at the historical pieces of art, literature, and letters, as well as assisting patrons with general inquiries and in-depth research.
- Ghyas Zeidieh – Ghyas Zeidieh is a graduate student pursuing a doctoral degree in musical arts in cello performance. He has been working at the Rita Benton Music Library for nearly three years and enjoys sparking students’ interest through conversation and opening windows to their research.
Thank you to the scholarship committee for their assistance with this process: Beth Stone, Rijn Templeton, Marianne Mason, H Pedelty, Pam Kacena, and Michelle Dralle.
Finally, sincere thanks to all UI Libraries staff who generously contributed to this student scholarship fund during the 2015 We Are Phil campaign. Your support provides direct assistance for our students here at the University of Iowa.
