The OPCMIA’s mission of empowering our members to improve their lives extends far beyond the workplace. One of the most notable ways we fulfill this mission is by helping members and their families gain a higher education that opens doors of opportunity to a brighter future.
That’s why I am proud to announce that eight children of OPCMIA members have been awarded Patrick D. Finley Scholarships for the 2018-2019 school year.
Named in honor of our late General President who launched this program nine years ago, the Finley Scholarship provides members and their dependants the opportunity to earn $5,000 towards their college or university tuition.
If you are interested in applying for a Finley Scholarship for the 2019-2020 year, please watch this website for announcements.
And please join me in congratulating our 2018 Patrick D. Finley Scholarship Fund Winners!
