PPG Foundation Donates $10,000 to Create Scholarships
The PPG Industries Foundation recently announced it has donated $10,000 to create two annual scholarships provided through the NACE International Foundation, a 501(c)(3) entity affiliated with NACE International, The Corrosion Society. Two students pursuing postsecondary academic degrees related to corrosion or coatings each received a $5,000 scholarship on behalf of PPG.
The 2014 winners were Kaitlyn Martin, a junior majoring in mechanical engineering at Colorado School of Mines; and Azra Turajlic, a freshman majoring in petroleum engineering at Louisiana State University.
“We appreciate PPG’s generous donation, which is helping NACE Foundation support the next generation of corrosion control specialists,” said Neil Thompson, president of the NACE International Foundation board. “By creating these scholarships, PPG expands learning opportunities that can benefit the overall coatings and corrosion fields.”
