In honor of Sister Linda Horan, longtime IBEW member and former Chair of the NH AFL-CIO Scholarship Committee, we are pleased to announce the winners of this year’s awards. In order to assist with increasing costs of higher education, we have increased the amount of each scholarship award for the 2018-2019 school year.
We are proud to announce the following award winners and alternates:

She also received a scholarship award from the NH AFL-CIO in 2017, following in the footsteps of a brother who won in 2016! Congratulations Bethany!!
Monica Johnson (APWU #230) and Tyler St. Peter (IBEW #2320) were selected as alternates in the event of any award winner’s inability to attend.
Congratulations to the Linda Horan Scholarship winners & thank you to all who took the time to apply. We wish you the very best in the upcoming school year.
The scholarship program was a labor of love for Linda, who was always committed to “leaving the ladder down” for the next generation. It is our hope to continue to honor Linda’s passionate advocacy for workers again next year by expanding our program and increasing the assistance we can provide. We can only do that with your help.
