Graduates Stephen and Samantha Parrott Show Appreciation for Library Services
Stephen and Samantha Parrott’s experience with the University Library is still very fresh in their minds. Both of the 2012 graduates served as recent ASUI presidents, and now they are out making their marks on the world.
"As students, we remember spending long hours in the library studying for upcoming exams. It was always a clean and quiet place to clear your mind,” said Samantha Perez Parrott. “The Library was always our favorite place to study because of the options of having a private study space or a more open area near other people”
Stephen Parrott agreed.
“Samantha and I donate to help fund the addition of more study spaces, both private and collaborative,” he said.
Beyond the physical space, Stephen says, “I am especially interested in helping the Library increase the holdings of its special collections. Those collections contain so many priceless historical resources about our state. We know our donations will go toward preserving the rich history of the University as well as the State of Idaho,” he said.
“The University of Idaho Library is essential to our University,” echoed Samantha. “Whether you know it or not the library touches each and every part of campus; and from there, it reaches out to the world.”
The couple currently reside in Middleton, Idaho. Stephen is employed with Northwest Farm Credit as a credit officer and Samantha with the Idaho Humane Society as a development coordinator.
