Shalini Ramachandran: 2016 Jack Clarke Scholarship Winner

shalini_headshot (002)Congratulations to Shalini Ramachandran, resident of Boise, Idaho, on receiving the annual Jack A. Clarke Scholarship. Shalini holds a Mathematics bachelor’s degree from the University of Bombay and English Literature master’s and PhD degrees from Purdue University. With a background in teaching and libraries, she aspires to work in an academic library as either a subject specialist or a digital humanities librarian. Community outreach, bridging the digital access divide, and service to diverse students are also important to her. A strong student, Shalini earned praise from Michele Besant, her online LIS 450 instructor. Michele writes “[Shalini’s posts] were the kind of questions that help move discussion forward and enriched the process for all of us.”

Each spring, the Jack A. Clark Scholarship is awarded to a student who shows exceptional promise in pursuing a career in library and information studies. Please consider contributing to the Jake A. Clarke Scholarship Fund–make a difference in the life of a SLIS student.
