A Thank You to the John H. Lyons Sr. Scholarship Foundation

I enclosed the photos for a special reason. Throughout this first semester, the construction was of great interest to me, and actually helped me through this semester. I loved watching the ironworkers build, and felt a little closer to home and my father. I loved hearing the machinery and metal noises. I even signed the beam. Just now, I realized that the local, which was doing the construction, was my father’s Local 207 (Youngstown, Ohio). It is very special because, you see, I am the first recipient of the John H. Lyons Sr. scholarship from Local 207.

I just wanted to thank all of those involved with the decision to award me this scholarship. It means so much to me.

Thanks.

Sincerely,

Annie Laurie Holfelder
