In 2010, IBEW Local 965 began recognizing members and/or retirees for giving back to our communities through volunteering. We have established the "Charlie Award", which is named in recognition of the first recipient, Charlie Wilhelm. Charlie inspired the need to recognize members giving back to our communities through his involvement with Habitat for Humanity and other charitable activities. Our last winner was Melvin Waugh in January 2017. We did not have a winner last year as no applications were submitted.
We will award another recipient this year. If you know of someone that should be considered, feel free to submit an application or contact the Union office before the January 2019 Executive Board meeting. You are able to submit your own name for consideration.
2012- Mark Schoen
2014- Christopher Esser
