The Mahoning Valley LMCC Scholarship goes to a YSU student pursuing a career that benefits the electrical industry. It’s the local union electricians’ and signatory electrical contractors’ way of giving back and promoting education.

“The scholarship is our way of promoting the value of education and supporting the local electrical industry,” said Scott Satterlee, business manager, IBEW Local 64 in Youngstown.

Last Year’s Winner

Past winners have ranged from children of union electricians and employees at signatory contractors, to active employees and interns.

Last year, Alex Birtalan, a junior estimator at “Joe” Dickey Electric and third-year electrical engineering technology student at YSU, earned the scholarship.

To be eligible, applicants must live in Mahoning, Trumbull or Columbiana counties and have at least a 2.5 GPA.

NECA-IBEW Electricians is an association of IBEW Local 64 in Youngstown, IBEW Local 573 in Warren and signatory electrical contractors across the Mahoning Valley.
