Sisters and Brothers -
Hope your 2020 is getting off to a great start! As you plan out your new year, I wanted to give you a heads up about an exciting new scholarship opportunity for members of Teamsters 117.
At our Womxn's Conference last year, we established the Jayme Biendl Working Womxn's Scholarship. The new scholarship commemorates the life and legacy of Officer Jayme Biendl of the Monroe Correctional Complex who was killed in the line of duty in 2011.
The Jayme Biendl Working Womxn's Scholarship is intended for Teamster 117 women members and their dependents who are pursuing continuing education or a training/vocational program.
Learn about eligibility requirements for the scholarship here.
In addition, we have a number of other scholarship and community sponsorship opportunities available to Local 117 members. These include:
- Teamsters 117 Jeff Alfieri Scholarship
- Teamsters Retiree Club Scholarship
- Solidarity Scholarship (continuing education scholarship open to all members)
- Community Sponsorship (for Teamsters doing good work in the community)
- Hoffa Scholarship (supporting the education of Teamster children)
Thanks so much for your membership in Teamsters 117!
