Hannah Jarvis, a first-year Nursing major from Chicago, Illinois, is Oxford College Library’s 2020 Sara Gregory Memorial Scholarship recipient.
The award was established in 2011 by Humanities Professor John W. Gregory, Sr., who retired from Oxford College in 1979. He established the scholarship in memory of his wife, a former chemistry and mathematics professor at Oxford who later became the college’s head librarian. The Sara Gregory Memorial Scholarship provides financial support and is granted to an outstanding first-year student employee of the library. This year there were many commendable candidates! Hannah is this year’s recipient for best reflecting the four principles we expect of our student employees:
- A professional attitude in working with the staff and their peers
- Flexibility in taking on any task assigned to them or any problem that may arise
- Invested in the success of library programs and the endeavor to improve upon them
- An approachable disposition that makes the library a safe and welcoming space to all
Congratulations, Hannah! We are proud to work with you!
