JDI awards 2017 scholarships to nine students
Oct. 4, 2017 - J. D. Irving (JDI) recently awarded scholarships to nine post-secondary students at a ceremony at Irving Paper in Saint John, N.B.
All of the students have parents who work in the Pulp and Paper Division, and some of the students have just completed work-terms and co-op terms in the division this summer.
“This is a great program that we’ve been doing for the past five years,” said Mark Mosher, vice president of the Pulp and Paper Division. “It is recognition of the value we have for our employees and the next generation as they pursue their academic studies. Awarding scholarships to the children of the men and women I work with every day is a real pleasure.”
