Message of Thanks from an OPSEU Local 101 Scholarship Recipient

[Ontario Public Service Employees Union Local 101] Contact Us
Hello, I’m the son of Adelina ‘Adelle’ Greco, an OPSEU 101 member. I just want to thank you for the 2016 OPSEU 101 Scholarship. It was important that I had some funds so I could focus on school. It really helped me survive the first semester and you really made it possible for me to attend the University of Waterloo. I think it’s fantastic that you are able to provide so much money to so many individuals and I do hope you continue to invest in the community. It meant so much to me and I’d imagine it’d mean even more to others. So again, thanks for your generosity! -Alessio Symons
