The Friends of the Cascade Library Memorial Scholarship was launched in 2008 as a tribute to Marilyn Meyer, a founding member of the Friends of the Cascade Library who worked tirelessly on behalf of the organization and the Cascade Library for more than 35 years until her death in November 2007.
The 2022 winners are pictured to the left: (L to R) Anika Deshpande, Claire van Zelst and Benjamin Zorn.
The Friends continue to support the Cascade Library and its many services to the community through a network of dedicated volunteers. In honor of all their efforts, two separate awards--each in the amount of $1,500 --will be given to two high school seniors attending either Forest Hills Central, Forest Hills Northern or Forest Hills Eastern and who best exemplify the volunteer spirit that motivated Mrs. Meyer and inspires current members of the Friends. Applicants'' volunteer service should be civic and secular in nature, with an emphasis on community assistance and/or improvement. Demonstrating a commitment to volunteering at the Cascade Library, in particular, is strongly encouraged but not required.
