UCF Libraries Awards Stillman Scholarship

Updated on: Jun 10, 2008 @ 1:08:00 pm
UCF Libraries Awards Stillman Scholarship Ms. Lindsay Allen, University of Central Florida (UCF) sophomore majoring in Health Services, will receive the $2,000 June S. Stillman Scholarship for Libraries Student Assistants and USPS Staff awarded through the UCF University Libraries in the fall semester.
Ms Allen, who maintains a 4.0 GPA, began working as a student assistant in the main campus library in January 2007. In addition to a full load of classes and her part-time position at the library, she also finds time to volunteer for the CFL Wesley Foundation. Her references described her as demonstrating great leadership skills, being a self-motivated individual who delights in excelling at anything she undertakes, and approaching life with joy. After receiving her undergraduate degree, Allen plans to work as a physicians assistant while attending graduate school and hopes to add working in the mission fields to her career accomplishments.
This scholarship, named for a truly remarkable woman, was established in 1999. June S. Stillman was one of the first librarians hired when the UCF (then Florida Technological University) Library was opened in 1968. She retired from UCF in December 1996 and tragically lost her life to an assailant in March 1998. Her friends and family established the June S. Stillman Memorial Scholarship in her honor. She is remembered as the consummate professional, the epitome of gentility and compassion, and a true and loving friend.
