AFSCME Local 668

Lanny Bakalyar Scholarship

Brother Lanny was one of the founders of Local 668. He served as this Local's President, Vice President, Steward, Local Executive Board Member, and Council 14 Executive Board Representative. In addition, Brother Lanny was always willing to volunteer for Local committee work; he was a member of many negotiations committees in addition to others.

Furthermore, he represented the Membership as a delegate to local, state and national AFSCME and AFL-CIO conventions. Brother Lanny believed in the concept of a Union and what it stands for. In doing so, he worked and fought hard for the members of this Local Union. So in Brother Lanny Bakalyar's name, we, the member's of AFSCME Local 668, offer this scholarship. The applicant must be in the current High School graduating class or attending a post-secondary school within five years of High School graduation.

Applicants can only submit (1) one application form even if they have (2) two parents who or legal guardian must be a member of AFSCME Local 668 for at least 90 days (unless more recently hired) prior to the drawing. The scholarship recipient must attend an accredited Post-secondary School (College or Technical).

The application must be returned to the Local Union Recording Secretary, Roger Janzig (390 Robert St.), by the first Friday of the month of February. A winner and alternate will be drawn by lot at the March General Membership meeting. Applicant's parent or legal guardian must be present to win.

For 2007, the membership voted to award two $500 scholarships to mark the 10th anniversary of the Lanny Bakalyar Scholarship. In light of rapidly rising post-secondary education costs, Local 668 will award one $1,000 scholarship beginning in 2008. Local 668 has awarded $10,500 since the inception of the scholarship to help pay the costs of post-secondary education for the children of Local 668 members.
