The CWA Joe Beirne Foundation recently announced that Chelsey Joan Robinson has been selected to receive a $3,000 scholarship award to help meet her expenses for the 2012-13 school year.

To be considered for the scholarship, applicants were required to submit an original 250-word essay relating to the role unions have played in their family’s life or why unions are important.  Robinson was one of 15 individuals to receive scholarship assistance, chosen on a nationwide basis from a substantial number of highly-qualified and deserving applicants. Winners will also receive second-year scholarships of the same amount, contingent upon satisfactory academic accomplishment.  
Robinson is the daughter of Larry and Becky Robinson of Taylorsville and will begin classes at Campbellsville University on Tuesday.
