The 2018 Godfrey P. Padberg Iron Workers Scholarship winner is Nicholas Howard, the son of Local 396 Journeyman Mike & Lori Howard and mother Pamela Howard.
The Padberg, Corrigan & Appelbaum law firm has proudly represented and supported members of Iron Workers Local 396 since the early 1960’s.

Each year the firm awards one $10,000 scholarship to a son or daughter of a Local 396 member to aid in furthering his or her education.
Since its inception in 2003, the firm has awarded a total of $150,000 in scholarships to the children of Local 396 members.
