We are excited to announce the 2019 recipients of the Leo T. Reed Scholarship Award! First and foremost, we want to thank all of our applicants for their very thoughtful responses. The students that applied made the selection process very difficult. Local 399 would like to thank the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor for reviewing each application and thoughtfully selecting this year’s 10 recipients, which the Fed has done since the program’s inception. Local 399 chose the L.A. Federation of Labor to select the recipients to ensure fairness in the selection process. We are proud of each and every student that applied. We’re excited for their dedication to further their education after High School and we wish all of our applicants the best of luck on their future academic paths.

Each winner is pictured below with his or her answer to the question:

“What does the Teamsters Union mean to you?”


We are excited to have seen this Scholarship Program grow since its introduction in 2017. We are grateful to the Members of Local 399 that voted this year to increase the scholarship amount to $5,000 per winning student. We hope to continue to grow this program to support the children of our Local 399 Members. The 2020 Leo T. Reed Scholarship Fund will be available in early March of next year. Make sure you are connected to our channels of communication to be the first to know when it launches.
