    Joseph, a past recipient of the $10,000 James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship academic award whose parent is a member of Local 731 in Chicago said, “The scholarship helped me complete my undergraduate studies in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in Aerospace from Michigan State University. I then continued my education at Purdue University and received a Masters in Mechanical Engineering. The JRHMSF award gave me and the family comfort in financial relief so I could attend a great university that gave me these opportunities and focus on my studies. Growing up in a Teamsters family means we have grit, determination, perseverance, and a strong sense of family love. I appreciate all the sacrifice that goes in on a daily basis from not only my parents, but all the Teamsters.”
