The 2019 scholarships are in remembrance of retired International President Ronald J. Heintzman, who passed away in April 2018, and retired International Executive Vice President, Robert Baker, Sr., who passed away in May 2018.

 

Heintzman joined Local 757-Portland, OR, as a transit police officer for the Tri-County Metropolitan Transportation District of Oregon (TriMet). Heintzman was elected President of Local 757 in 1988. He served five terms in that position until he was appointed as an International Vice President in 2002. In 2004, Heintzman was elected International Vice President. He was appointed to serve as International Executive Vice President and later appointed to serve as International President from July - September 2010.

In 1975, Baker was elected to the local's executive board and served in that capacity until his election as local Vice President in 1977. He was elected President of Local 627 in 1980. In 1989, Baker was elected as an International Vice President, and was re-elected to that position at the next seven International Conventions.

We hope the recipients of this year's scholarship, named in their honor, will use them in part to study union and community organizing, and grow to fight injustices everywhere.

 

This year, the program will consist of five scholarships each in the amount of $8000. In addition, a $2000, scholarship may be awarded to a technical or vocational school applicant.
