Hannah Morris, a freshman Plastics Engineering Technology student from Lake Odessa, is one out of 20 student recipients of the DME Plastics University program $1,000 student scholarship.
“Everyone should try to apply for scholarships ... even if it is just one or two,” Morris said. “The money can make a real difference.”
The scholarship is part of the DME Company’s Continuing Education Support program to ensure the addition of exceptional students to the plastics industry. The program ensures the availability of a highly-skilled and well-trained workforce. The scholarship is awarded to students interested in plastics-related careers and to advance the skill sets of DME customers working in mold-making and plastics.
“DME is committed to advancing training and education within the plastics industry,” said Dave Lawrence, president of DME Company. “As one of the preeminent leaders in the industry, it’s both our obligation and in our best interest to help develop and groom tomorrow’s mold making and plastics industry experts.”
