LafargeHolcim recognises Megawatt STEM scholarship recipients

LafargeHolcim has awarded three Megawatt Scholarships to three students in Paulding, Ohio, to pursue degrees in a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) field.

The Megawatt Scholarships were established in November 2018 in partnership with One Energy.

Jamie M. Gentoso, CEO, US Cement, says: “STEM education plays an integral role in US competitiveness and the country’s future economic prosperity and the Megawatt Scholarship is a great opportunity for us to invest in the next generation of leaders.”

This year’s recipients include:

  • Austin Chirgwin, Antwerp High School, Biomedical Engineering, IUPUI (Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis)
  • Madison Coyne, Wayne Trace High School, Aerospace Engineering, University of Cincinnati
  • Reece Thompson, Wayne Trace High School, Computer Engineering, University of Cincinnati

Three Megawatt Scholarships, one for each turbine being built at the Paulding Plant, are awarded to local high school graduates in Paulding pursuing two-year or four-year STEM degrees. Additionally, names of the scholarship recipients will be permanently placed on the tower base of the wind turbines, in recognition of the students’ achievement.

Once complete, the turbines are expected to generate more than 12 million kWh annually, which could eliminate the equivalent of more than 9,000 tons of carbon dioxide.

Jereme Kent, CEO and general manager of One Energy, says: The Megawatt Scholarship programme will contribute to the continued success of the community surrounding Paulding for years to come.”
