July 16, 2014PHILADELPHIA — SCA, a leading global hygiene and forest products company, has awarded a $1,000 scholarship to James Campbell of Johns Creek. He will attend the University of Georgia.
The scholarship is part of SCA's annual scholarship program for children of employees. This year, 44 high school seniors and college students received a combined total of $62,000 in SCA scholarships for their full-time education at an accredited U.S. or Canadian university in 2014-15.
Since creating its annual scholarship program seven years ago, the company has given more than $422,000 to high school seniors and college students.
"Our employees make SCA what it is today," said Don Lewis, president of SCA Americas. "We are pleased to help their children pursue their careers by providing education scholarships. These talented young adults have shown a deep commitment to their schools and communities that we are proud to support."
An independent organization, Scholarship America, reviewed all the applications and selected the winners, based on their academic achievements, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of goals and an outside appraisal.
