Betty Thomas, Reference Librarian at Charlotte School of Law, has been awarded the Lucile Elliott Scholarship. The scholarship, sponsored by the Southeastern Chapter of the American Association of Law Libraries (SEAALL), was established to provide financial aid to improve one’s career in law librarianship. Part of the purpose of this award is to encourage recipients to remain in the profession. The selection committee considered the length of membership in SEAALL, participation and service to the library profession, and the intended use of the scholarship. Thomas will be using the scholarship to attend the SEAALL Annual Meeting and Conference in April in Lexington, Kentucky. As a requirement of the scholarship Betty will be writing an article for the chapter’s quarterly newsletter, Southeastern Law Librarian. Betty says she is “honored to receive the Lucile Elliott Scholarship and excited about going to SEAALL.”
Betty is also appreciative of the significant support from the management of the Charlotte School of Law in helping her achieve this recognition.
