Quilt for Scholarship Campaign Under Way

A generous donor provided this quilt for the fundraiser after an original quilt was stolen on April 11. Anyone with information about the theft of the quilt is encouraged to contact Boise Police at (208) 570- 6300.

Albertsons Library is continuing a fundraising campaign to support the Susan Henggeler Memorial Scholarship Fund for a second consecutive year. Over nearly 48 years, Henggeler used payroll deduction to donate a share of her salary every pay period to student scholarships.

“Susan was a beloved library employee who cared deeply about students. This fund raiser is a way to honor her dedication to Boise State, a way for us to carry on her legacy,” said Dean of the Library Tracy Bicknell-Holmes.

A beautiful, handcrafted, multicolored quilt was donated to honor the memory of Henggeler. With a career at the library that spanned nearly 48 years, Henggeler had the opportunity to mentor and create long-lasting relationships with many student employees. Thus, the Susan Henggeler Memorial Scholarship Fund was established to support library student assistants who have been employed at Albertsons Library for a minimum of one year. More information regarding the scholarship can be found in a previous Update story.

From now until April 30, anyone who donates to the Susan Henggeler Memorial Scholarship will receive entry into a drawing for the handcrafted quilt. Suggested donations are $5 for one entry or $10 for three entries. No donation is necessary to enter the drawing. Donations are being accepted at the Albertsons Library Dean’s Office, or through the “Make a Gift” link (Designation: Susan Henggeler Memorial Scholarship). The library dean’s office is open from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The drawing will be held May 1.
