Eight students awarded Paper Science and Engineering Leadership Scholarships

The Paper Science and Engineering Foundation recently awarded the Bob and Barbara Williams Leadership Scholarship to eight students in the paper science and engineering curriculum who demonstrate superior leadership, creativity and academic achievements.

logoThese awards are full tuition scholarships. Recipients of the awards were selected by a committee of engineering faculty and Paper Science and Engineering Foundation staff.

The 2013-2014 recipients are:

  • John Baron, senior chemical engineering major with a concentration in paper science;
  • Lindsey Berning, a junior chemical engineering major with a concentration in paper science;
  • Lauren Bracken, a May 2013 chemical engineering-paper science graduate and current master’s student;
  • Daniel Ferriell, a junior chemical engineering major with a concentration in paper science and minor in mathematics;
  • Nathan Hartman, a senior chemical engineering major with a concentration in paper science and a minor in mechanical engineering;
  • Emma Lipscomb, a sophomore chemical engineering major with a concentration in paper science;
  • Kelley McGill, a senior chemical engineering major with concentrations in paper science and biochemical; and
  • Jessica Schmidt, a senior chemical engineering major with a concentration in paper science.

The scholarships are provided through the generosity of The Bob and Barbara Williams Foundation. Bob Williams, now retired, helped transform numerous failing paper mills into world leaders as co-founder of the James River Corp. His impact continues to be felt through his encouragement of high leadership standards for graduating engineers.
