Daughter of Teamsters 2010 Skilled Trades Worker Awarded $5,000 John Lyons Memorial Scholarship
Congratulations go out to Siena Quinn, daughter of San Diego State University facilities electrician and Teamsters 2010 member Steve Quinn, who was awarded a $5,000 John Lyons Memorial Foundation scholarship earlier this week. Her essay on the importance of labor unions along with her school grades made her the top choice out of all other applicants.
Siena starts at UC San Diego the first week of October and will be majoring in Anthropology.
Teamsters Local 2010 President Catherine Cobb and Skilled Trades Board President Cal Mason were on hand to congratulate Siena as Nate Fairman, Executive Board Member of the San Diego Labor Council, presented her with the scholarship.
“Congratulations to Siena Quinn, Steve Quinn, and the whole Quinn family, on your achievement! The Teamsters Union has always supported education. That’s why we support Union scholarships, and why we stand together in our Union to win strong contracts — so that working people can provide a good life and education for our children! We applaud the John Lyons Memorial Scholarship and the San Diego Labor Council for supporting the education of union members and their families. Siena, we wish you the best for your studies at UC San Diego!”
– Jason Rabinowitz, Secretary-Treasurer, Teamsters Local 2010
