March issueMarch Engineers News

This month’s magazine features a three-page spread of some great work going on in our Oakland District 20 shops called “How does it work?” We’ve also printed our quarterly Financial Reports in this edition, as we close-out the 2014 fiscal year.

March 31 is the deadline to apply for a Local 3 scholarship, so get your applications now and submit them by the end of the month. In addition to the six Academic Scholarships, which are based on academic accomplishments, Local 3 also awards 25 Merit Scholarships, which are chosen solely by a raffle drawing.

Children (including stepchildren and foster children) of Local 3 members may apply, and more than $70,000 is available! (The parent of the applicant must be a member for at least one year immediately preceding the date of the application.)

To illustrate just how valuable a Local 3 scholarship can be, this month we feature a 2010 first-place Academic Scholarship winner and highlight her achievements thanks to the scholarship. We also feature the Nevada Apprenticeship Graduation, recently held in Reno. Read it now.
