Congratulations to Andrea L. Bottoms, recipient of a REACH 21 Institute Scholarship

Andrea L. Bottoms has been selected as one of 20 REACH 21 Institute Scholarship recipients.  As a recipient, she will receive support (including travel within the U.S. and Canada, lodging and meals up to $1,500) to attend the upcoming 2010 Spectrum Leadership Institute June 23-25, 2010 in Washington, DC.  The REACH 21: Preparing the Next Generation of Librarians for Leadership project is funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

The Institute brings together LIS students and graduates from across the country to network, learn models of cross-cultural leadership, reaffirm professional values grounded in service to diverse communities, develop career skills and connect with a wide-range of leaders and potential mentors. It is designed to empower participants to attain and retain positions of leadership, thereby ensuring the quality and validity of library and information science for our increasingly diverse population of users.
