New Scholarship Honors Retired LIS Professor

September 10, 2008

Former students of retired Professor Genevieve M. Casey conceived and initiated a new scholarship to honor the woman who did so much to shape their professional lives. WSU Library System Dean Sandra Yee announced the creation of the Professor Genevieve M. Casey Endowed Scholars Fund at a recent reunion for Casey’s students from the Class of 1972.

This new award will be funded through gifts from Casey's students, friends and colleagues. The purpose of the scholarship endowment is to continue the work begun by Casey by helping fund the education of LIS students dedicated to serving the economically disadvantaged and underserved.
