Dear Friend:

The NTU Education Foundation is proud to announce its 19th Annual Albert Shanker Scholarship Awards and Hall of Fame Dinner on Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at The Robert Treat Hotel, 50 Park Place, Newark, NJ at 6:30 p.m. Tickets for this special program are $70.00, which includes a buffet dinner and dessert, along with music and a special program for your enjoyment..

This year, the Newark Teachers Union is proud to induct Christine Veliz into the Newark Teachers Union Hall of Fame. Christine worked in Newark for over 30 years and served as a NTU Building Rep and Vice President. She continued to be very active in the labor movement even after she left the Newark Public Schools.

Last year, twenty students received academic scholarships, including one Presidential Award in the amount of $2,500.00, one Director’s Award in the amount of $1,750.00 and the rest in the amount of $1,000.00.

You can support these fine young people and hardworking paraprofessionals by becoming a scholarship sponsor, purchasing tickets to attend our dinner, placing an ad for your business or publishing a personal message. The Ad Journal/Ticket request form is enclosed.

We are relying on your continued support and good will to continue this worthy endeavor. Rest assured that the recipients will be held to an even greater level of academic and community achievements.
