Veronica Pierre (mathematics and psychological sciences) is one of two students who have been awarded the Connie Foster Student Scholarship for the 2022-23 academic year. For the full WKU Library aritcle, go here.
Veronica Pierre is working on her degrees in Applied Mathematics and Psychological Sciences and is a senior this fall. After graduation in the spring, she plans to pursue a two to three yearlong internship with the Christian campus ministry Reformed University Fellowship, then apply to graduate programs to become a certified mental health counselor. She has worked at WKU Libraries for roughly three-and-a-half years, first as a student security patroller, then briefly as a student circulation assistant, and currently as the Interlibrary Loan student assistant. "My education is a means to an end, a tool that allows me to build genuine relationships with people which I would not be able to build otherwise, and those relationships will always be worth more than my degrees," said Pierre. "Being awarded the Connie Foster scholarship serves as a reminder to me that I am personally accountable to those who support the work I do to further my education; I often get lost in the monotony of studying and meeting deadlines throughout each semester and forget that my efforts count for more than the letter grades I receive."
“We are pleased to offer student scholarships to our library assistants each year,” said Susann de Vries, Dean of WKU Libraries. “Through the generous support of our donors, this endowment contributes to student success.”
