80 Graduating seniors from HPOU family receive scholarships

A total of 80 sons and daughters of Union members were awarded college scholarships at a special two-part April 17 presentation ceremony at the Union.

The HPOU’s annual scholarship presentations to graduating seniors who applied for the scholarship aid through an essay contest will be different this year.

The 80 recipients were presented a total of $42,750 to help defray the cost of their freshman year in college.

The two separate ceremonies were necessary to comply with restrictions posed by the pandemic, HPOU Education Committee Chairwoman Rhonda Williams said.
