Western Kentucky University students Meredith Cherry and Grace Alexieff are this year’s recipients of the Connie Foster Student Scholarship Endowment at WKU Libraries. Cherry is a junior from Lexington, Kentucky, majoring in nursing, and Alexieff is a sophomore from Bowling Green, Kentucky, majoring in history and minoring in philosophy and political science.
Cherry’s supervisor Morgan Moran says she has worked for the Visual and Performing Arts Library (VPAL) for three years and works hard to do her best. “Meredith is great with our patrons and works well as part of the VPAL team,” said Moran. “We are so proud of her.”
Alexieff has worked for University Libraries since fall 2018 and has worked primarily in the reference and circulation desks, but assists wherever needed, according to her supervisor, Amanda Hardin. “Grace has helped in stacks, security, and is always willing to help cover if needed. She is extremely hardworking, kind, and a pleasure to work with—I am so pleased she is a recipient this year,” said Hardin.
WKU Libraries Dean Susann deVries says this is the fourth time awarding the Connie Foster Student Scholarship Endowment. The financial assistance is offered to students who have excelled in the classroom, illustrated service to the university, and demonstrated a financial need. “We are very appreciative of the support from our donors. This endowment allows our students the opportunity to receive scholarship money every year,” said deVries.
