At its summer board meeting, the Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation (PGSF) elected several new members as well as re-electing existing members to additional terms. The PGSF Board directs an endowed fund of just under $10 million that is dedicated towards encouraging young people to consider the graphics field as a career and then assisting in their education process to facilitate that end.
Nominated for new three-year terms on the board were:
- Nick Gawreluk, Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Germany)
- Stephanie Hill, HP
- Teresa Campbell, Printing Industries Mid-America
- Nominated for additional three-year terms were:
- Peter Schaefer, New Directions
- Amela O’Gorman, Quad Graphics
- Frank Kanonik, Intellective Solutions
These directors, along with the rest of the board, bring a diverse cross section of industry experience to leading PGSF and maintaining relevance in a changing industry and educational environment.
PGSF has released career materials that have been widely praised throughout the industry. Attracting youth, training new employees and replacing current workforce loses are major issues for companies of all sizes across the country. The Foundation is actively addressing these issues and providing tools for companies to enhance their own efforts in this area.
