The association was unable to present any awards in 2020, due to interruption of the school year by COVID-19. But making up for the lost year, three scholarships have been awarded in 2021. The winners are Lucy Hankins, Linnaea Gossard and Selma Casagranda.
Lucy Hankins, who has spent time on her family’s fishing boat, built a presentation about Alaska commercial fishing sustainability. Linnaea Gossard created a short story about the lives of slaves before abolition. Ms. Casagranda, wrote a poem entitled, “The Truth of Home”, about an orphan growing up at the Jesse Lee Home. All three of these projects demonstrated a sincere passion for their subject through the research and completion of the application process.
The Friends of the Library and SCLA would like to thank each of the applicants for their hard work in pursuit of these $1,500.00 scholarships. May each of them encounter favorable adventures as they move forward with their educations and dreams!
