Walter Cantrell Scholarship

Posted January 26, 2024

Local 567 Members,

We have a Local Union 567 Walter Cantrell Scholarship Winner! 

Isabel Portillo, dependent of LU 567 member Jose Portillo was one of the 2023 essays selected by the Walter Cantrell Committee to receive a $2,000.00 scholarship. Isabel is currently studying at the University of Nevada Reno under the master’s program as a Physicians Assistant. She plans to use the money to purchase books and supplies required to continue her education. Her goal is to finish the program and stay in Reno to help with the current medical professional shortage the area is experiencing.

In Solidarity,

Chris O’Flaherty
