For Children of L.U. 2150 members in good standing as of January 1, 2020, we will be having and essay contest and a chance to each win a $500 prize by entering the Forrest Ceel, Essay Contest. Students who are enrolled or committed to a Tech School or College for the Fall semester of 2020, are eligible to submit an essay. The theme of the essay will be, why join a Union?
The contest is named in Memory of Forrest Ceel who was a lifelong supporter of the Labor Movement. Forrest believed that education was a key to success in life and wanted money set aside after his passing to fund this contest to help students with their continuing education costs. Forrest was a former Local 2150 Business Manager, he retired on July 31, 2011 due to health issues. He remained active in the labor movement during his retirement right up to his passing.
Over his 35-year career as an IBEW member with We Energies and Local 2150, Forrest gave his all every day. He led by example with honesty and integrity and fought for all those in the labor movement. Forrest touched the lives of all who met him and is greatly missed by all.
