The IBEW 1245 Advisory Council was pleased to honor 2018 Al Sandoval Memorial Scholarship Contest Winner Adam Garcia at its quarterly meeting in Vacaville.
Adam’s essay presented a thoughtful historical analysis of the attacks on unions, as well as the resulting ramifications that these attacks have had on the middle class. He read his winning essay aloud in front of the room of union leaders, staff and guests, and Local 1245 President Art Freitas presented him with a certificate from the union.
Adam is the son of IBEW 1245 member John Garcia, who works in outside construction. Both Adam and his father expressed their heartfelt appreciation for the $2,500 scholarship, which is renewable for up to four years.
Adam is majoring in history and political science at UC Davis.
