MASSENA, NY -- On behalf of the Reynolds Metals Foundation, representatives of the Reynolds St. Lawrence Reduction Plant recently presented $5,000 to Clarkson University for Native American student scholarships.
Reynold’s gift will provide financial aid to Native American students pursuing an education in Clarkson’s School of Engineering. Reynolds Metals Company has a long standing history of working in partnership with the University to recruit talented individuals and diversify the technical workforce in the aluminum industry. Currently, more than 40 Clarkson alumni work for Reynolds in its Massena operations and other national locations.
In 1972, Clarkson University founded the first chapter of the now national American Indian Science and Engineering Society, and provides a continuum of academic opportunities for Native American students through its Pipeline of Education Programs.
