The Education Committee is pleased to announce that Chase Hanes and Jessica Serrao are this year’s recipients of the C. David Jackson Memorial Student Scholarship. Their awards will fully cover registration and expenses for attending SNCA’s upcoming annual conference in Asheville.
Hanes is a graduate student at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in the Library and Information Studies Department. He is focusing on special collections, academic libraries, and bibliotherapy—all the while examining the ways feminism can be integrated into library spaces. He received his B.A. in English Literature at UNC-Chapel Hill and is currently a certificate student in the Women’s and Gender Studies Department at UNC-G while he pursues his MLIS. Outside of school, he loves painting/drawing, spending time with his four dogs, and learning about the Brontë sisters and their novels.
Serrao is a graduate student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill pursuing her M.S. in Library Science with a concentration in Archives and Records Management. She also holds an M.A. in Public History from North Carolina State University and a B.A. in Anthropology from Binghamton University. She has held several positions in academic archives, including the King Internship for Digital Collections at Duke University and the Dulles Archival Fellowship at Princeton University. She is currently a Library Associate at NCSU Libraries Special Collections.
Congratulations to both students! Please watch the SNCA blog and listserv for announcements about next year’s scholarships or contact the Education Committee chair (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
