Shelley Lawrence Interpreter Preparation Program Award


In recognition of Shelley Lawrence's 35 years of care and dedication to Ohlone College's Interpreter Preparation Program (IPP), we are proud to announce the creation of the Shelley Lawrence IPP Award.  This award will assist IPP students during their Mentorship and/or Internship semester with expenses such as transportion costs.  Awards will be made annually by the IPP faculty and staff based on student commitment to the IPP program and financial need.

Shelley is asking her many friends to consider making a gift to the Shelley Lawrence IPP Award Fund in lieu of retirement gifts.  To honor and support her many IPP students - past, current, and future - Shelley will personally match every gift up to $10,000!

Please join Shelley in supporting Ohlone's IPP students with a gift to the Shelley Lawrence IPP Award.  Remember, every dollar you donate will be doubled by Shelley herself!
