Congratulations to this Year’s RWDSU Scholarship Recipients!
We are pleased to announce that Local 338 members Brandon Clack and Megan Fox are this year’s RWDSU Alvin E. Heaps Scholarship winners! Brandon, who is a full-time student at SUNY Oneonta, has been a member of Local 338 for over a year, working at ACME Markets when he isn’t away at school. A freshman, Brandon is currently studying fashion merchandising with hopes of one day becoming the CEO of his own fashion company and magazine. He says that being a member of a union is valuable because it’s helped keep him and his coworkers safe throughout the pandemic by enforcing safety guidelines in his workplace. Megan is a student at Simmons University, where she is studying to become a nurse. She’s been a member of Local 338 for two and half years and says that her coworkers have been like a second family to her throughout her time working at ShopRite. According to Megan, who won a Local 338 scholarship this year as well, the RWDSU scholarship will help her complete her degree and will take some of the weight off of her shoulders when it comes to having to worry about paying for tuition. Congratulations, Brandon and Megan! Best of luck at school! For more information about the 2021 RWDSU Alvin E. Heaps Scholarship, be sure to check our website or log in to your “My Local 338” account!
