We’ve asked the ACRL 2017 Conference scholarship recipients to describe the impact of attending the ACRL 2017 Conference on their professional life and/or their library.
Stephanie Dawson Everett is the manager of marketing and communications at the University of Akron in Akron, OH.
“When I started with the University Libraries at The University of Akron in the spring of 2011, I didn’t know that it would be where I would find my professional home. Now I find myself more than six years later serving as the first marketing and communications manager and I see my career in the library to be life-long. The travel scholarship lightened my financial burden which allowed me to focus on the most important aspect of professional development – learning. With a young family this is an incredible blessing to me! I hope that as I continue my career in an academic library I will be instrumental in helping students and patrons achieve their goals, as you have been instrumental in helping me achieve mine.”
