The FEA would like to announce the winner of the FEA Memorial Scholarship.  The winner, who writes an essay about how they would work to solve a problem on either a local, state, or national level, was Brandi Holowecky.  Brandi wrote an essay on how she would combat drug abuse.  Congrautlation Brandi on winning the $500 scholarship, and good luck as you attend the University of Akron in the Fall.


Just as we were attacked by SB5 and were helped by other unions to help repeal the bill, we are urged by another union to support their cause.  The USPS is having issues with Staples, and have initiated a “Stop Staples” Initiative.  Staples has been selling postal services for profit.  NEA is supporting the postal employees as they did for us during the SB5 battle.
