Are you an OPSEU member and a contract faculty member at an Ontario College? Your dependents are eligible to apply for the new OPSEU scholarship honouring Amy Stiles. The application deadline for this $1000 scholarship is July 30, 2020.
Amy Stiles was an OPSEU activist, whose legacy included her work on behalf of her local, her division and her union. Amy was a nursing faculty member at Conestoga, where she worked as the coordinator for the Personal Support Worker program at Riverside Glen in Guelph, and where she conducted a “Living Classroom” with on-site learning for her students.
In 2017, while returning home from a rally at Queen’s Park in support of striking college faculty, Amy was tragically killed in a car accident.
This scholarship is a fitting tribute to the memory of Amy Stiles, as a union activist at Conestoga College, and a defender of workers’ rights.
