Local Lodge 2339H Member Wins Union Plus Scholarship

IAM Local Lodge 2339H member Sarah Gray has been awarded a Union Plus Scholarship to attend the National Labor College (NLC) in Silver Spring, MD. A flight attendant for Continental Express Jet, Gray also serves on the Communications Committee for Local 2339H in Houston, TX, and hopes a degree in Labor Education will give her the tools to get even more involved in her union.

I used to just know about my job and my local union,” says Gray. “Now I’m learning so much about the labor movement, and I feel that it will really help me not only in my job, but also in my ability to communicate with other union members.” The $1,184 scholarship will cover her tuition and books.

The Union Plus NLC Scholarship Fund has provided more than $190,000 since its creation in 2002. The NLC is the nation’s only accredited college exclusively dedicated to educating union members, leaders and staff.
