Local 1245 is pleased to announce the winners of this year’s educational scholarships.
Aileen DeVelbiss, the wife Mark DeVelbiss and daughter of Pablo Ganillo (both IBEW 1245 members employed at PG&E) is one of the recipients of the 2016 Roger Stalcup Community College Scholarship. The scholarship is named in honor of the late Roger Stalcup, a long-time union assistant business manager. DeVelbiss, who attended the April Advisory Council meeting in Vacaville to receive her award, intends to use the scholarship to pursue a nursing program.
Corey Navarro, wife of Outside Line Journeyman Lineman Adam Navarro, is the other recipient of the Stalcup Scholarship. Navarro, who received her plaque at the July Advisory Council meeting in Reno, is currently studying biology and is thrilled to have received this scholarship. “We really love this union,” she said.
Wesley Kenyon is the winner of the 2016 Ron T. Weakley Line School Scholarship. The award is named for the founder of Local 1245. Kenyon, the son of IBEW 1245 Business Representative Ralph Kenyon, told the Advisory Council in April: “My dad’s been with this union for a long time and I just want to join it. Thank you.”
Alexa Hardy won the Al Sandoval Memorial Scholarship essay contest. Her father, Jason Hardy, is employed at Modesto Irrigation District. “This scholarship means that I can go to my dream school!” said Hardy, who intends to study math.
Congrats to all the winners!
