Karen Biglin Read, Learn, and Travel Scholarship
I know that reading changes lives, and I devoted my career to that principle. I grew up loving to read books, and I visited my local public library every week.. Working as a college librarian for 37 years, I have seen firsthand the many rewards of reading. Reading expands one’s horizons and fosters a curiosity to discover the world – it is a gateway to travel and exploration.
I put myself through college, and when I received a scholarship, it was the confidence-booster I needed to keep going. I am forever grateful for that gift, and I hope to give others the same encouragement. I have worked with college students my entire career, and I see how hard some of them work, sometimes holding down two jobs while going to school. This is my way of supporting them. I feel so fortunate to be able to give back.
