TE SIG Scholarship Renamed After Diane Feldman

Author: Meredith Kinder - Published At: Jul 06, 2009 09:00am EDT -
SIG News
The Technical Editing SIG renamed its scholarship as the Diane Feldman Technical Editing SIG Scholarship.

The scholarship is named in honor of a dear friend of the SIG, Diane Feldman. Diane Feldman is an Associate Fellow of STC and was the manager of the Technical Editing SIG for 7 years. Her exceptional leadership, selfless contributions, and enthusiasm for the SIG and the technical editing profession helped the SIG pull through society changes, managed to successfully re-charter and re-focus the SIG, and ultimately initiated a thriving and growing SIG. She mentored many of the SIG leaders throughout their tenures, leaving a lasting mark on those leaders and their careers.
