Contribute to the scholarship fund!by Chris Dugovich, Council 2 President and Executive Director on June 28, 2013
This year Council 2 will go over the half-million mark in dollars awarded to our deserving kids who are seeking a college education.
In 2013 alone your union through its Scholarship Committee will award over $60,000 in scholarships to members and their dependents.
It is a great program that does at least a small part in helping with the escalating cost of higher education. The good ol’ days are gone when a decent summer job might earn you enough to pay for the on-coming academic year. With tuition alone escalating to over $12,000 a year at our state schools, even the best paying summer work isn’t going to cut it!
On July 12th at Chambers Bay Golf Course your local union can send a four-some for some fun and a great cause. Even if you can’t make it or you are not a golfer you can participate and contribute.
Sponsor a hole and all your proceeds will go to a scholarship. Last year alone we raised more than $21,000 that will be used to provide an additional 10 scholarships of $2,150 a piece.
We are out to better that number this year but we need every local union’s help!
