Just found out (the internet at the university was down all day) that our department has been awarded almost $900,000 in IMLS grant funds. Only 2 universities in TX received grants. What will we do with the money? Make it possible for 40 or so students to receive their MLS degrees and become school librarians in South Texas. This is our second grant. The first group is finishing up this summer. The grant will make it affordable for folks to obtain the degree and certification and also impact hundreds of thousands of students who will also benefit.

Kudos to Dr. Weimar (Holly) and Dr. Kuon (Tricia) for their Herculean efforts in putting all of this together. Looking forward already to the new students this will bring to our program. Proud? You bet!
