50 Students Win M3/TWU Scholarships worth $66,000

THURSDAY, JUNE 7 -- For the seventh year in a row, M3 Technology, which provides voluntary insurance coverage to TWU Local 100 members, has supported a scholarship program that helps college students with their expenses. The bulk are the sons and daughters of TWU members, although a few are TWU members themselves. A festive lunch was held for the winners at the Union Hall, with President Tony Utano congratulating the 50 awardees and their beaming parents. As each winner was introduced, their parents also came up for a photograph along with the Vice President from their respective TWU department. Four students won $5,000 scholarships, while the others won $1,000. Each scholarship is for the current academic year, and every eligible student or members can apply each year. President Utano urged the scholarship winners to respect and honor their parents and "never forget where you came from." Also congratulating the winners was John Pescitelli, of M3 Technology, who said that he would increase the amounts given to scholarship winners in the next go-round.
