PSAC Prairies is proud to offer full funding to one (1) union member who self-identifies as a woman to participate in the 2021 PSUW. This funding is available through the memorial scholarship established in the name of Sister Judy Shannon, who passed away in November 2016. Judy was a passionate educator, dedicated activist and an exceptional Regional Education Officer. She had been an advocate and facilitator for the PSUW for many years.
