For the Tomahawk Leader
TOMAHAWK – Three Tomahawk students were among those who received scholarships from LP Building Solutions.
Brynn Beaumier (University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, Mathematics/Education), Lane Beaumier (Michigan Technological University, Mech. Engineering), and Viana Johnson (University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, Pre-Dentistry/biology), along with over 60 other students from around the country, were recipients of a total of $95,000 in scholarships awarded to the children of LP employees for the 2020–2021 school year.
“The LP Scholarship Program recognizes and rewards the accomplishments of employees’ children who excel in their studies and make positive contributions in their communities,” a release from LP stated. “Since 2001, LP has provided over $2 million in scholarships to help more than 375 students complete their undergraduate college education.”
The LP Scholarship Program awards recipients $1,500 per year for up to four years of full-time undergraduate study or until the student has completed their program, whichever occurs first, for a maximum award of $6,000 per student.
“We are very proud to offer this scholarship program to the children of our employees,” said LP Senior Vice President, Chief Human Resources and Transformation Officer Robin Everhart. “Education has been a cornerstone of the company’s values since our founding in 1973. Through community grants, our emphasis on employee education and training, our tuition reimbursement program, and the LP Scholarship Program for the children of our employees, we’re able to bring this value to life in a very meaningful way. The 65 students receiving awards this year have worked hard to achieve academic success, and it is our privilege to support them along their collegiate journey.”
Administered by Scholarship America®, submissions are evaluated based on each student’s academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an outside appraisal. Financial need as calculated by Scholarship America must be demonstrated for the student to be awarded a scholarship.
Submissions are received each year from across the company’s North American locations from students pursuing an undergraduate credential at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school.
