On August 17, 2016, during the NRLCA Convention in Nashville, TN, the William B. Peer Scholarship Award was presented to our own Katie Morris. William B. Peer was a partner in the law firm, Peer, Gan, & Gisler LLP, a Washington, DC-based law firm with a nationwide litigation practice and a special focus on effective resolution of labor and employment disputes.* Peer, Gan, & Gisler LLP represents the NRLCA. Mr. Peer passed away in 2012 and in his honor his partners created the William B. Peer Scholarship Award. The award is presented every two years to four of the best and brightest local stewards in the NRLCA (one steward selected by each of the four Executive Committeeman on the National Board). Before Mr. Gan announced the four winners, he said that this award is like the Academy Awards for stewards. Congratulations, Katie!
