MCO, UnionPlus award scholarships

The daughter of an MCO member won a $500 scholarship from Union Plus. 2014 Scholarship Application-1 web

Chelsea Ross, daughter of Chippewa member Timothy Ross, was one of only six SEIU members to win a Union Plus scholarship.

Timothy said Chelsea has always been a hard worker. She’s held two jobs this summer and will start a nursing program at Alpena Community College this fall. Chelsea hopes to become a physician’s assistant. She graduated this year from Pickford High School with a 3.9 GPA.

A statement from Union Plus described Chelsea as grateful for the benefits union members, including her father, are provided. “A union is almost a family all of its own,” she said. “Being a part of the union has benefited by family time and time again.”

Congratulations, Chelsea!

Of course, MCO also gives scholarships every year to children of members.

MCO awards 20 scholarships of $750 each. A three-person committee selected scholarship winners last month. All of them are children of MCO members and are attending college this fall.
