2022 Daniel X Campbell Scholarship Recipient

Scholarship Awarded  

Congratulations to Olivia Wilson, daughter of CSEA member, Trent Wilson from SUNY Construction Fund. Olivia is the recipient of the 2022 Daniel X Campbell Scholarship which was presented at the region’s June executive board meeting. Wilson shared with attendees the subject of her winning essay, a profile on labor activist Fannie Sellins who was brutally murdered on a picket line in 1917. Wilson admired Sellins’ bravery in “standing up for others.”
