2011-2012 Hoffa Scholarship Awarded LU 355 Member's Daughter
Updated On: Feb 23, 2012

   Rebecca Russell, daughter of Local 355 member Leonard Russell (Burris Foods) has been awarded a $10,000 scholarship by the James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund.

   Rebecca was valedictorian of her class and recently graduated from Milford High School in Milford, Delaware. She will enter the Biochemistry/Pre-Med program at the University of Delaware this fall. She aspires to be a Doctor of Dermatology.

   "I was really excited when I opened the notification letter. It will be a great help with my college tuition and with my plans to be a doctor," said Rebecca. Her love of math and science along with the desire to help others lead her to choose a career in medicine.

   Rebecca was vice president of her Senior class, served as secretary to the National Honor Society, was a Milford High drum major, and played the bassoon in the Delaware All State Band and Orchestra and Kent County Honors Band. She is a Delaware Secretary of Education Scholar, the recipient of the Semper Fidelis Award for Music Excellence and Outstanding English Student Award, among other awards. She plays both the saxophone and the bassoon, is an avid reader and enjoys yoga.

   Leonard Russell has been with Burris and a Teamster member since 1987. He drives a tractor trailer for the company. Rebecca is Leonard and wife Donna's only child. "We are extremely proud of Rebecca," said Donna in an email to us. "She has worked hard since her first day of kindergarten, has always carried a full academic load but is also involved in extracurricular activities. She even found time to volunteer."

   The Officers and Trustees of Local 355 extend their congratulations and best wishes to the Russell family.
