In addition, upon amalgamation in 1997, Local 1070’s Larry W. Pleasant’s Scholarship was incorporated into this fund.

W. VERNIE REED SCHOLARSHIP

In 1981 the W. Vernie Reed Scholarship Fund was established as a living memorial to the late W. Vernie Reed, General Secretary-Treasurer of the Laborers’ International Union of North America. The scholarship fund has awarded over 300 scholarships totaling almost $500,000 to our members, their children and grandchildren from various Local Unions throughout the Region. We should all take great pride that we have established such a fund in memory of one of LiUNA’s past leaders, who fought so hard for every LiUNA! member, Local Union and District Council.

**Applications are now closed, but will be open Spring 2019
