June/July 2005
Whitney Hsiong came to Local 1414’s May meeting to accept her four-year IAM college scholarship, presented by Grand Lodge Rep Don Whitaker. The funds should come in handy as she begins her studies at Harvey Mudd College in Southern California with a major in Electrical Engineering. Whitney, who attended Lowell High School in San Francisco, is the daughter of Local 1414 member Youmans Hsiong who works for SF Muni’s Woods Body Shop.
