President’s Message – May 2018

Dear PSCT Members,

I would like to thank Jeff Niederst of Sherwin Williams for taking time out of his schedule to come and speak to all of us about packaging coatings and the technological advancements being made. Another great example of how coatings affect our everyday. It is wonderful to see how companies are making great strides to a better tomorrow.

Thank you to all who donated to the Hiram P. Memorial Scholarship and STEM Grant this year. Also, a special thanks to Karren Hollertz, Scholarship Chair, and the rest of the scholarship committee comprising of Cliff Schoff, Deb Longhini, Bilk Hawk and Britney Grabigel for donating their time this year. Lastly, congratulations to the following scholarship recipients this year: Caleigh Anderson, Nicolas Roberts and John Sherbondy. John was also awarded this year’s STEM grant.

Come and join us at Maggie’s Farm Rum in the Stip on Monday, May 14th for this years May Outing. The event will consist of a tour and tasting, a glass and buffet dining. There will also be a cash bar. Please RSVP to Dan Bickford at or pay online at by May 1st. See this month’s news letter for more details.

Lastly, I would just like to thank everyone for having me as their PSCT President this year. We had a great year, with a bunch of wonderful speakers and topics.
