Tyzska Scholarship

The Tyszka Scholarship was created to honor Bill and Marilyn Tyszka, who have spent decades building union strength (for example, Bill was a founding member and leader of the 4Cs Part-Timers unit) and working toward a more equitable society.  Their belief in the power of ordinary people to develop just and humane organizations, and an America true to its most noble ideals, energized colleagues and friends throughout their working lives and in their “retirement.”  After “retiring,” they were instrumental in creating the 4Cs Retirees Chapter, serving as elected leaders for many years (Marilyn still is) – while also being regulars at the State Capitol, lobbying for causes important to union members. This scholarship will assist students who wish to work on the causes they cared so deeply about.

For more information and an application, email Bill Searle at . The scholarship is for $1000.
