Scholarship Success: Thank You!!


Navy Pier formed a picturesque backdrop for the 2008 ILA Conference.

Thank you to all who generously gave toward the Sylvia Murphy Williams Scholarship Fund! Our Committee raised $1,302 on the day of the DiversiTea! at the ILA Conference, which exceeded our goal.

Thank you very much!!

Please read about the seven college students in Illinois who are this year's winners in the October edition of the ILA Reporter, available at the Publications link at: http://www.ila.org. We look forward to the continued success of these students and we hope to continue the scholarship for years to come! Those students who earned the scholarship are: Linda Sue Collins, Harriett Elizabeth Green, Deana Greenfield, Elizabeth Hernandez, Hannah Lee, Laksamee Anne Putnam, and Roy Saldana, Jr.

If you would like the opportunity to give something back to the library community in Illinois by helping the next generation of librarians achieve their dreams, please see the information about the Sylvia Murphy Williams Fund at:

Thank you again, to all who helped!

A special thanks to Cyndi Robinson and Bob Doyle of the ILA and everyone on the Conference Committee who made the 2008 Conference a success! Thanks also to the staff at Navy Pier for their quick response in setting up for the DiversiTea!
