A scholarship has been established in the name of Stephen and Herbert Baker to assist apprentice electricians starting their electrical career with IBEW Local 666. The recipient of this award will be granted a $500 scholarship to assist with the cost of tuition and books.   

Herbert W. Baker was a longtime member of IBEW Local 666, serving as a Journeyman Electrician for 23 years.  His son, Stephen W. Baker, eventually followed his father's career path and also earned his Journeyman Card and worked through Local 666 as a member for 42 years prior to his passing in 2018.  Both men were committed to family, and both believed in always reaching back to help others coming up behind them.  Stephen and Herbert dutifully paid dues every year, Stephen paying well into his retirement years, understanding that the dues went to help others in the local who needed it most.  

"The Stephen W. Baker/Herbert W. Baker Memorial Scholarship seeks to continue the spirit of both men by helping to support new electricians beginning their careers.  Helping offset some of the financial burden of tools, tuition and books as an electrician begins his or her career means that one day they will be able to reach back and do the same for someone else behind them."  ----Adam Baker (son of Stephen W. Baker)

The scholarship is available twice a year to any apprentice starting their First Year/Second Semester of apprenticeship.  The recipient of the Summer/Fall Semester scholarship was awarded to Alexis Smith.  Alexis is the eighth recipient to receive the $500.00 scholarship.  Congratulations!!
