John Blanchard, Jr. Memorial Scholarship For Potential Librarian-Teachers

The California School Library Association has a scholarship opportunity for a library technician.

From the CSLA website:
This $1,000.00 scholarship is to assist a school library paraprofessional in obtaining the preparation needed to quality and serve as a school library media teacher. Mook and Blanchard, in collaboration with CSLA, have established the John Blanchard, Jr. Memorial Scholarship. John, an avid reader, believed that self-discovery comes from reading books by favorite authors about special interests. He passionately promoted building collections of reading materials in school libraries so that students could discover themselves through the pleasure of reading.
