Paper Engineering Students Awarded Williams Leadership Scholarships

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.

The 2017-18 winners are: Catherine Andres, Daniel Knettel, Olivia Koury, Jack Parrish, Madison Ryan, Isabelle Tessier, Jesse Via and Caleb Wright.
