Congratulations to our 2020 Tom Mooney Memorial Scholarship winners: Hannah Welly and Grace Garand!

Hannah plans to attend Capital University, majoring in Adolescence to Young Adult Education and minoring in Special Education. Her mother is a member and officer at Vanguard Sentinel Education Association, Local 6078.

Grace plans to attend the Ohio State University majoring in Political Science and Prelaw with a minor in Women and Gender Studies. Her mother is a member of Toledo Federation of Teachers, Local 250.

The Tom Mooney Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in December 2006 to honor late OFT President Tom Mooney's legacy in public education and union work, and to help others pursue his passions for social justice and political action. The Tom Mooney Memorial Scholarship Fund Committee selects an annual Mooney Scholar to receive a $2,000 scholarship. The scholarship is intended to provide an opportunity to a graduating senior from a public high school who plans to pursue a degree in education, history, labor studies or political science. An applicant must be the child of a member (in good standing) of the Ohio Federation of Teachers or the child of any staff person who is employed by OFT or its locals. 
Applications for the 2021 Tom Mooney Memorial Scholarship will be open next spring.
