TLMI Announces the Reopening of the Association’s Scholarship Program

TLMI announces that the association has reopened its Scholarship Program for this academic year. The program reopens following a year-long hiatus due to the unique events of the past year. The association is refocusing its commitment to the program and to being a primary force in the industry, helping to enable students to pursue a fulfilling career in the printed packaging space.

Over the past half decade, Workforce Development has been one of the central pillars of TLMI’s Strategic Plan, and the association’s Board of Directors renewed its commitment to prioritizing workforce last year at the association’s board meeting in Austin, Texas. The association remains committed to utilizing its resources to positively impact the current challenges its members are facing in attaining, and retaining, qualified employees. Scholarship recipients are students enrolled in both two and four-year certified degree programs. In 2019, TLMI expanded its scholarship reach to also include students in two-year technical programs.

Linnea Keen, TLMI President, comments, “I want to thank the co-chairs of the TLMI Workforce Development Committee, Nick Spina of Luminer Converting Group, and Kristen Shields of Graymills. They have been working hard to reignite interest in the program and working with their committee to think of additional ways that the association can allocate resources to help our members with one of the most critical and urgent dynamics that companies are facing today. I want to remind our members that their own employees are also eligible to receive TLMI scholarships to further their own educational coursework in the industry and I encourage members to make sure that their teams know about this unique opportunity.”
