If you have been in the Plastics Industry for 25 years or more, your experience is invaluable and should be shared. It has both professional and personal implications. The Western Plastics Pioneers could be that vehicle for accomplishing the sharing process.
Mature industries have changed so drastically in a generation that virtually anyone with the required 25 years of experience has made a significant contribution. The social implication of Pioneer membership involves your renewing relationships with people who were your “fellow” employees at companies who have storied pasts. Our Western Plastics Pioneers can make that happen.

The Western Plastics Pioneers has established a scholarship program to provide awards of $1,000.00 each to undergraduate students enrolled in associate degree or technical degree programs. To qualify, the applicant must be attending schools in Arizona California, Oregon or Washington.
The scholarship program will be managed by the SPE Foundation with offices in Newton, Connecticut. The Foundation will include information on their website and prepare literature to be sent to various schools and publications. Students who have demonstrated or expressed an interest in the plastics industry and are taking courses that will be beneficial to their career in the plastics industry will be considered for the scholarship. The Western Plastics Pioneers scholarship program was established to further the education of plastics and technology by students in these fields.
