Article-IAPD announces 2014 scholarship recipients

With the new school year fast approaching, the International Association of Plastics Distribution (IAPD) announced that 12 recipients have been awarded a 2014 IAPD Scholarship through the IAPD Charitable Foundation. Annual IAPD scholarships are awarded based on a student's academic achievement, extracurricular activities and financial need. IAPD member company employees, children of member company employees and students enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program for polymer sciences, are eligible to apply for the IAPD scholarship.

The following students have been awarded a 2014 IAPD Scholarship:

  • Andrew Baker, son of Jeffrey Baker, an employee of Asahi/America Inc.
  • Kimberly Baston, daughter of Raymond Baston, an employee of Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products
  • Brad Burnett, an employee of SABIC Polymershapes

  • Elizabeth Wiley, daughter of Robert Wiley, Jr., an employee of Cope Plastics Inc.

This is the second recognition for Kimberly Baston, Brad Burnett and Nicholas Gross, who were awarded last year with a 2013 IAPD scholarship. IAPD scholarships are funded by donations from IAPD member companies and individuals in the plastics industry, as well as IAPD and its for-profit subsidiary, Association Services International. Each year, scholarships are awarded in amounts up to $4,500.

The IAPD, established in 1956, brings together distributors, manufacturers, manufacturers' representatives, fabricators, recyclers and service providers in an environment which encourages a free flow of ideas and information that help members increase profitability and build their businesses.
