The Paper Science & Engineering Foundation at Miami University recently awarded eight Bob and Barbara Williams Leadership Scholarships to students in the paper science and engineering curriculum who demonstrate superior leadership, creativity, and academic achievements. These prestigious awards are full tuition scholarships. Recipients of these highly competitive awards were selected by a committee comprised of engineering faculty and Paper Science & Engineering Foundation staff.

The 2014-15 winners are:

  • Emily Allen, a sophomore majoring in Chemical Engineering with Paper Science and Mathematics Minors
  • Katie Anderson, a senior majoring in Chemical Engineering with a Paper Science Minor
  • Kirsten Anderson, a senior majoring in Chemical Engineering with Paper Science and Spanish Minors
  • Lindsey Berning, a senior majoring in Chemical Engineering with a Paper Science Minor
  • Anna Brandmeier, a junior majoring in Chemical Engineering with a Paper Science Minor
  • Emma Lipscomb, a junior majoring in Chemical Engineering with a Paper Science Minor
  • Megan Stoy, a junior majoring in Chemical Engineering with a Paper Science Minor
  • Danielle Wardeiner, a senior majoring in Chemical Engineering with Paper Science and French Minors.

Two of these students have already accepted full-time positions which will begin after they graduate next May. Katie Anderson will be working with Solenis, a chemical sales company that provides supplies to paper mills, and Lindsey Berning will be working as an Associate Engineer with Domtar Paper.

The scholarships are provided through the generosity of The Bob and Barbara Williams Foundation. Mr. Williams, now retired, has been a force in the global pulp and paper industry as co-founder of the James River Corporation. His impact continues to be felt through his encouragement of high leadership standards for graduating engineers.
