2018 NWPA Area Labor Federation Scholarship Winners

We congratulate all of the applicants for our scholarship essay contests for demonstrating how determined they were to obtain the necessary funding for their education. They have shown more initiative than most of their peers. They should all be as proud of themselves as we are.
We wanted to thank our Judges this year: Andrew Harkulich, Phillip Lasky, David Henderson, Anthony Modaffare, Lee Williams, Daryl Busch, James Nuber, James Kunz, and Pattie DeMichele.  Our judges all commented that they had an extremely difficult time selecting one winner from the Essays they were judging because so many were excellent.  The winners were as follows;
The NWPA ALF invited the winners and  their parents join us as they received their award and join us for lunch on Saturday, June 2nd at our annual meeting at 10:00 AM.  Unfortunately, our scholarship winners were unable to attend mostly because of the late notice and conflicts in scheduling. Jim Cassidy the Business Manager of AWIU 2, was present and accepted the awards for Liam Hauserman and emily Duessel and said he would be proud to present them to them at a later time. Brendan Wolf the Busiess Agent for IBEW 459 was present accepted the award on behalf of Travis Wilcox and said he would be honored to present it to him later.
We remind all of the applicants that they are able to apply again next year, and that we have two articles on our website about additional funding for education under the category of Resources: "Educational Funding  Opportunities" and "Additional Scholarship Links"? Our web address is http://pa.aflcio.org/nwpaalf, we hope they will check it out. We wish them well as they go forward with their education and encourage them to apply again next year.
