Proposed HSLI Bylaws Amendment

For two years there has been an ad hoc Helen Knoll Jira Scholarship Committee reporting to the HSLI board on the Jira Scholarship fund.

Please consider the amendment below and send any comments to the HSLI Bylaws Committee Chair, Jeanne Sadlik jsadlik@luc.edu, by 12/31/2014.
