For Immediate Release
STILLWATER -Four students will receive a scholarship this year for their hard work at the Library.
The 2012-2013 recipients of the Class of 1942/Willham Library Scholarship are Rachel Seo, an industrial engineering and management senior from Oklahoma City; Jerod Potts, a political science and English senior from Dallas; Allison Martin, an international business and economics senior from McMinnville, Tenn. and Amber Spicer, a human development and family science senior from Sharon, Okla.
The scholarship is given in the form of a pay raise of $1 per hour for the 2012-2013 academic year.
“The Class of '42 scholarship will help me meet my financial needs,” Spicer said. “Not only will I not have to find another job, it will also help me afford basic necessities and living expenses.”
Potts, who intends to further his education after graduation, was grateful for the raise.
“This scholarship will help me pay for my upcoming grad school applications,” Potts said. “It’s not cheap to apply to school. This scholarship arrived at the perfect time.”
The scholarship was established in 1992 by the Class of 1942 to honor OAMC President Oliver S. Willham. The award recognizes outstanding student employees of the Library and encourages further excellence from the students of Oklahoma State University.
