Emily Martin of Miramichi, New Brunswick has been selected by an independent jury to receive a Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada Scholarship.
Emily is the daughter of Dean W. Martin from Local 506.
The criteria to select the winners are academic achievements and a two-thousand-word essay on “What the labour movement means to me?”
Every year CEP awards twelve scholarships of $2000 each across Canada. Three are awarded in the Atlantic region, three in Quebec, three in Ontario and three in the Western provinces.
“Our Scholarship Program reflects the long lasting interest of our membership in higher education”, commented CEP National President Dave Coles. “On behalf of our membership I would like to congratulate Emily for the award. We know that the money will be put to good use”.
Emily is presently double majoring in Psychology and Sociology at the University of Prince Edward Island.
