For Immediate Release
STILLWATER -Five full-time OSU Library employees were selected this year for the Greenberg Howland Professional Development Scholarship. Winners received either $1,000 or $500 scholarships for their graduate education.
The $1,000 recipients include Matthew Benbennick, government documents department, and Shirley Tatum, microform and media room. The $500 recipients were Deb Hull, acquisitions, David Peters, special collections, and Kathleen Swinnea, dean’s office. Most of the students selected are working on their Master of Library Science degree.
Emeritus librarian Jill Holmes established the Greenberg Howland Scholarship in 1992 upon her retirement from the OSU Library. The award was created to honor former fellow librarian employees, Mary Greenberg and Marguerite Howland. Thanks to the generosity of many other contributors, the endowment has grown significantly.
The Greenberg Howland Award is presented annually to full-time library employees for continued education related to their work at the Library. Priority is given to those pursuing a post-secondary degree.
