How has it impacted Chris?
The Spectrum scholarship was a significant financial help when I was in library school, and that was one of the main reasons I applied for it when I was a library school student. But Spectrum has come to mean something far more to me. Spectrum is the future of librarianship as a whole. We need to represent the communities we serve, and we need to have people to understand the issues that face our communities. We need diverse librarians, with diverse points of view. Spectrum is a pathway for us to achieve that goal; it is the lifeline we need to recruit and retain diverse librarians. That is why I am supporting Spectrum as a Spectrum champion. Please join me with your support.
The Spectrum Scholarship is celebrating its 20th anniversary! We want to grow the program so that it can continue to be a power for change for the future.
