Bakersfield College is honoring a librarian for her efforts to increase student engagement.
The college announced Laura Luiz as the recipient of the 2019 Community Learning Resources Program Award.
Just ahead of the 2018 midterm election, Luiz helped to assemble the “Get Out the BC Vote” program.
The program addressed voter registration and a breakdown of the ballot, while encouraging students to become informed voters.
Luiz will be headed to Washington, D.C. where the award will be presented to her at the 2019 ALA annual conference.
