Every year AFT Massachusetts awards thousands of dollars in scholarships to eligible high school seniors who are dependents of AFT Massachusetts members. The awards, named in honor of former AFT leaders Kathy Kelley, Albert Shanker and Sandra Feldman, and for long-time AFT Massachusetts field representative Jay Porter, are awarded on the basis of a labor history exam administered by the Massachusetts AFL-CIO. Pictured below: several of our 2023 scholarship winners attended our awards dinner on April 28, 2023 at the Edward Kennedy Institute for the US Senate.
Congratulations to our 2023 Labor Scholarship Award Recipients.
