Pulp and Paper Division Awards Nine Scholarships

October 3, 2017

Since 2013, the Pulp and Paper Division of J.D. Irving, Limited (JDI) has awarded 44 post-secondary scholarships to employees’ children. Recently 9 students were awarded scholarships at a ceremony at Irving Paper in Saint John, New Brunswick.

“This is a great program that we’ve been doing for the past five years. 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,” said Mark Mosher, Vice President of the Pulp and Paper Division.

Each of the students have parents who work in the Pulp and Paper Division, and some students have just completed work-terms and co-op terms in the division this summer. Below are the names of all the students who received scholarships from the Pulp and Paper Division of the J.D. Irving, Limited group of companies.
