TLMI Announces Scholarship Committee, Evaluation Panel

TLMI has appointed a new Scholarship Evaluation Committee made up of both converter and supplier members. The Committee’s primary directive is to evaluate incoming TLMI scholarship submissions from students in the industry, ultimately deciding which applicants will receive association scholarships. Kristen Shields, President of Graymills, is the Scholarship Committee Chair and she is also the Co-chair of the TLMI’s Workforce Development Committee.

The association provides scholarships to candidates that fall within one of three categories including two-year college degree programs, four-year college degree programs and full-time employees of TLMI member companies. 

The association also provides one graduate-degree program scholarship annually to a full-time employee of a member company who is pursuing a graduate degree. Scholarship selection is based on academic achievement, a demonstrated interest in the label and packaging industry, a statement of goals, and a personal interview.

The Scholarship Committee and Evaluation Panel consists of the following association members:

Kristen Shields, Graymills (supplier – new to the committee)

Scott Pillsbury, Rose City Label (converter – longstanding member of the committee)

Dave Nieman, All Printing Resources (supplier – new to the committee)

Beth Smith, StickerGiant (converter – new to the committee)

Mark Turk, International Label & Printing Co. (converter – new to the committee)

The final due date for students to submit is May 15, 2022. The Committee will be evaluating all applications throughout May and the winners of the 2022 Scholarship Awards will be announced in early summer. Historically, four to six scholarships are awarded to students on an annual basis totaling around $30,000 in monies awarded.
