Note from the Editor:  We asked Jordan to let us know how the Guild scholarship will be of help this fall.  Here’s his note…

I will be a freshman attending San Francisco State University as a Civil Engineering major. As a child, I loved exploring the city of San Francisco. I always wondered how mankind can create such a beautiful civilization, from its towering skyscrapers like the Transamerica Pyramid to the sturdy piers of Embarcadero. The city still lives in harmony. Creating beauty that is accessed everyday is why I am striving to be a civil engineer.

The idea of being the mastermind behind a creation of awe has always been a dream of mine. Being the youngest sibling, I looked up to my older sisters as they continue to follow their dreams of going to graduate school. With a retired father on a fixed income, the Russ Cain Memorial Student Aid Fund can also help my parents with school expenses.

I highly appreciate the Pacific Media Workers Guild for not only allowing me to pursue my goals, but for supporting me in my journey as well. Thank you for the scholarship!

Editor’s note: We are so proud of the Castro family.  Here is a flyer for posting at your work site, Guild members.
