Donation to UMaine Pulp & Paper Foundation for New Student Swag Bags

Baileyville, ME – This fall the UMaine Pulp & Paper Foundation (UMPPF) will welcome 32 new scholarship students. To help ease their transition and properly welcome them to the industry, they are presented gift bags with items from many industry sponsors. Pictured here are Stephan Donnell of HR and Emma Smith, a process engineer at St Croix Tissue as they gather Woodland Pulp and St Croix Tissue gifts to be sent to the new students. Emma is a May graduate of the University of Maine and UMPPF scholar and a great example of how St Croix Tissue relies heavily on students prepared by the Foundation and UMaine for hiring new engineers.

The University of Maine Pulp and Paper Foundation recruits, financially supports and prepares talented engineering students to become the next great leaders in the pulp and paper industry, while also helping to meet the workforce needs of the industry. It is the oldest pulp and paper foundation in America and a pioneer of the first program in the country to study pulp and paper engineering. They award more than 100 full or partial tuition scholarships annually and are represented by the most alumni in the industry. St. Croix Tissue and Woodland Pulp are proud to enjoy a longstanding and strong partnership with the UMaine Pulp & Paper Foundation. Find our more at:
