Union Plus has awarded $150,000 in scholarships to 130 students representing 43 unions in the 2011 Union Plus Scholarship Program.
“During a time when the labor movement is under attack, helping union members and their educational goals is critical. This year’s scholarship recipients appreciate that their unions provide family-sustaining benefits, a voice in the workplace and a path to achieve the American Dream,” says Leslie Tolf, president of Union Privilege, the organization that provides and array of Union Plus members benefits for union families, including the scholarship program.
With a view to promoting the program and personalizing the winners Union Plus turned to MEDIAmobz to produce video testimonials with 4 scholarship winners.
Two-time scholarship winner, Holly LaCount, is a high-achieving student pursuing a four-year degree in political science at Cal Poly.
