President’s Message – April 2018

Dear PSCT Members,

I would like to thank Cindy O’Malley of KTA-Tator for taking time out of her schedule to come and speak to all of us about the methods and technology used to investigate a coatings failure in the field. Although, I was unable to attend the March meeting, I was told the talk was very interesting and highly engaging by those I spoke with. We would also like to thank KTA-Tator for hosting the March meeting at their facility. It is always nice to have a new venue to visit.

Thank you to all that applied for the Hiram P. Memorial Scholarship and STEM Grant. Applications will be reviewed by Karen Hollertz and the rest of the scholarship committee this month. Be sure to check out the May newsletter to see this year’s winners.

It is great to announce that the paint pot was finally won at the March meeting. Let us all congratulate Karren Hollertz of PPG on her $150 jackpot. The paint pot will now be back to $25 for the April drawing. Although, you will still need to be in attendance to win, we will be picking until an attending winner is chosen. So, please come out and join us at our last official meeting of the year as we will be having a special May event at Maggie’s Farm Rum Distillery in the Strip.

We are grateful to announce that Jeff Niederst of Sherwin Williams will be our speaker for the April meeting at Roland’s in the Strip. Jeff’s talk will be about Coatings for Metal Packaging, both invisible and consumer valued. So, please join us for our last formal meeting of the 2017-2018 PSCT year.

Mark DePasquale

PSCT President 2017-2018
