Quincy Junior-Senior High School graduate Kendal Hicks has won a $7,500 college scholarship from Operating Engineers Local 3.

Hicks, the daughter of Local 3 member Randy Hicks, was chosen for her outstanding academic achievements and involvement in many extracurricular activities. She was part of her school’s concert, jazz and honor bands and served as president of the school’s Service Club, organizing activities such as Safe Trick or Treat, Thanksgiving dinner for the community and blood drives throughout the year.



Hicks has applied to many universities, including UC Davis and St. Mary’s College, and plans to earn her master’s degree. She understands the importance of unions, specifically Local 3, and was a great candidate for this award.

“Since my parents are in unions, I am likely to join one myself, because I have directly witnessed the many benefits unions have had in my life,” she said. “I have enjoyed the benefits of unions my entire life and will continue to be supportive of the necessity for unions in the United States.”

Operating Engineers Local 3 represents about 35,000 heavy equipment operators and other workers in construction, public works and law enforcement and will award 42 college scholarships this year. This includes two first-place academic scholarships of $10,000 each, two second-place academic scholarships of $7,500 each, two third-place academic scholarships of $5,000 each and 25 merit scholarships of $1,000 each. This year, 11 additional $1,500 scholarships were also awarded.

Hicks was the second-place female academic winner. A Local 3 representative presented her with an award at a luncheon June 22.
