THE STORY:

San Diego County Library Director José Aponte announced today that he will ride across America to raise awareness and funds for the Spectrum Scholarship Program of the American Library Association (ALA). 

The Spectrum Scholarship Program’s major drive is to recruit applicants and award scholarships to American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino or Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islander students.  Spectrum provides a one-year $5,000 scholarship and over $1,500 in professional development opportunities to eligible students planning to attend an ALA-accredited graduate program in library and information studies or school library media program.

The Mission of the American Library Association Spectrum Scholarship Program is: “Improving service at the local level through the development of a representative workforce that reflects the communities served by all libraries in the new millennium.”

 “This is a journey celebrating America, libraries and the promise of future leaders,” said Aponte. “Our ride allows us to test physically the limits of our human potential. Professionally, the Masters in Library Sciences opened my life to the inherent promise we all possess. By supporting Spectrum Scholars we can insure institutional change and community empowerment with future leaders that can continue to transform communities insuring safer, healthier, and ultimately a more prosperous future."

All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

José Aponte will ride with Cycle America from Seattle to Boston https://www.cycleamerica.com/ raising awareness, donate before September 1, 2016 to cheer his efforts!
