Past recipients have included Tressa Johnson, Rebecca Dyehouse, James Logan, Lisa (Tyler) Longmire, Stacy Wyatt, Carina Langstraat, Meredith Tummeti, Erika Miller, and Liz Ochoa. Including this year's awards, since 2011 the CLHLSF has awarded $13,250 in scholarships.

Rosie Bromberg
"I’m a library associate at the Poulsbo and Kingston locations and I’ve been with KRL for 4 ½ years now. What I love about libraries and library work is the commitment to serving our diverse communities and helping them realize the possibilities available to them, not only in our collections, but in their lives, through access to resources, programs, materials, services, etc. In the future, I’m excited to work with teen and adult services in public libraries! Receiving this scholarship is such a great help on this journey; I am so thankful to Cynthia Lord Harrison, Bainbridge Public Library, and Kitsap Regional Library for their support."

Reagan Callahan
"I have been volunteering at the Kitsap Regional Library Sylvan Way branch since September 2017, assisting Ms. Ericka, the Youth Services librarian, with Storytime each week. This September, I will begin working on my Masters of Library and Information Science through the University of Washington. I am incredibly honored to have been chosen to receive such a generous scholarship from Cynthia Lord Harrison and the Bainbridge Public Library."

Olivia Muzzy
"Hi! I’m Olivia Muzzy and I’m the Public Services Supervisor at the Poulsbo location of Kitsap Regional Library. I am in the third semester of the MLIS program at San Jose State University, and I’m interested in continuing my career in public libraries, with a particular focus on emerging technology and systems management. Thank you to Cindy Harrison and all who made this scholarship possible! I greatly appreciate this professional encouragement and financial support as I advance in my studies."
