Kris Turner Receives Elizabeth Moon Proctor Scholarship - October 31, 2011
Madison, Wis. - Kris Turner received the Elizabeth Moon Proctor Scholarship on October 7, 2011, at the Lakeview Branch of Madison Public Library.
Currently a Page II at the Meadowridge Branch, Turner was honored to accept this year’s scholarship. With aspirations to become a public librarian, Turner seeks to, “encourage a productive environment for all patrons by promoting adult outreach and youth reading programs,” he said.
Turner will graduate in the spring of 2012 with his Masters in Library Science in the School of Library & Information Studies at the UW Madison.
To encourage and assist Madison Public Library employees who plan careers in library and information studies, family and friends established the Elizabeth Moon Proctor Scholarship fund in Elizabeth “Betsy” Proctor’s memory.
Betsy enriched and enlivened Madison Public Library from 1967 until her retirement in 1996. She inspired many library careers through her intelligent and tireless dedication to public library service, her commitment to outreach to minority and institutionalized populations; her irrepressible, infectious laughter and her enduring friendships.
