The Tyszka Scholarship supports a college student whose goals are to promote social change. It was created to honor Bill and Marilyn Tyszka who spent decades building union strength and working toward a more just society. Their belief in the power of ordinary people to develop more just and humane organizations, and an America true to its most noble ideals, energized colleagues and friends throughout their working lives and in their “retirement”. After retiring, they were instrumental in creating the 4Cs retirees chapter, serving as elected leaders for many years, and were Board members of the AFSCME retirees chapter. This scholarship will assist students who wish to continue work on the causes which they cared so deeply about.
