This scholarship is awarded in fond remembrance of Ms. Debbie Heitleband, a former President of the Finance & Technology Unit, and an AME member for 28 years. Applicants for this essay scholarship will be required to submit an essay on the topic of “Unsung Labor Heroes”. The U.S. Labor movement is filled with important heroes who have fought to bring us rights like the weekend, increased wages, and an end to child labor. Applicants should research one lesser-known Labor Leader and share their history, accomplishments, Labor affiliation, and their lasting legacy. If they are still active in the Labor movement, share their goals for the future.
