The Scholarship Fund was established to honor Ed “Doc” Dougherty, a Local 804 Executive Board member. In 1974, Doc Dougherty was killed when he was run over on a picket line during an 87-day strike against UPS.

We are proud to support the children & grandchildren of 804 members through this scholarship.
