UWUA Scholarship Winners
2018 marks the 59th anniversary of the UWUA Merit Scholarship Program. The National Union’s long-standing tradition of investing in America’s most precious commodity – its youth – has thus far acknowledged the outstanding academic achievements of over 100 students, all of them daughters and sons of members throughout the country, with a total scholarship award approaching $500,000.
The UWUA Merit Scholarship Program provides two four-year scholarships annually, with a minimum of $500 and a maximum of $2,000 per year for each of the four years for both recipients. The National Merit Scholarship Corporation decides the yearly stipend, depending on the school the student is attending, the family financial situation, and other factors.
This year’s UWUA Merit Scholarship winners are: Emma Franklin, daughter of Jody and Douglas Franklin, from Local 106, pictured top left with Michigan State Utility Workers Council President Pat Dillon; and Julie Michaud, daughter of Jan and Don Michaud, pictured below with brother Zak and Local 369 President Craig Pinkham and National Rep. Dan Hurley.
Julie is attending Bridgewater State University in Bridgewater, MA. Emma is pursuing a degree in environmental biology at Ferris State University in Big Rapids, MI.
