One of my most rewarding and challenging assignments. Working with the executive and local was the best part. They treated me as one of their own which did not come easy. The executive is one of the most effective when it comes to defending the rights of its membership. Helping them along the way has been the reward. Your local has had two Local Officers (Randy Kitt and Jake Moore) move on to become National Representatives, something I hope I have played a small role in. The local having a scholarship in my name is just over the top. I am extremely humbled and honoured by this and can not thank them enough. I am most grateful that it is not a memorial scholarship, at least not yet!
