RON CALLAGHAN MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP
Ron Callaghan was the President of Local 230.
While working at his trade as a lineman in 1973, he was electrocuted on Parker Island, one of the small Gulf Islands. Ron was a young father and husband at the time of his tragic death. He was a safe, heads-up tradesman, well-liked by all of us who knew him.
We are proud that we can extend his memory and, at the same time, assist young people with their formal education.
This Scholarship is open to all children and grandchildren of local 230 members.
