Auxiliary of the United Transportation Union Scholarship Fund Winners 2011/2012

The members of the Auxiliary of the UTU Scholarship Fund Board met in North Olmsted, Ohio. Auxiliary members submitted 71 scholarship applications for the 2011-2012 school year. The board is required by the Internal revenue Service to “spend” at least five percent of our average annual net worth on the charitable purpose (namely scholarships) annually. The board must award at least eight (8) Auxiliary scholarships in order to meet our IRS obligations. The board was able to award twelve (12) Auxiliary scholarships for 2011-2012. The scholarships were awarded through a random drawing by Tracy Neighbors of the UTU legal department in the presence of the board members. The following are the winners of the 2011-2012 Auxiliary scholarships. Winners are listed in the order the application was drawn. Congratulations to the scholarship winners! The Auxiliary of the UTU is proud to be able to help in the education of our Auxiliary family members.
