Two Winners Chosen for The James Davidson Innovative Student Scholarship
SprayWorks is proud to announce they have selected two winners for the second annual James Davidson Innovative Student Scholarship. This year’s pool of candidates was extremely driven and passionate about their chosen field of study. The scholarship was intended for just one winner, however it was impossible to select just one recipient this year.
The scholarship is named after SprayWorks Equipment Group owner, James Davidson. The James Davidson Innovative Student Scholarship was designed to encourage Chemical Science students to create innovation in their chosen industry and during their university education.
The scholarship recipients are Ellen Goff, a Chemical Engineering student at Trine University in Indiana, and Drew Horton, a Chemical Engineering student at the University of Akron in Ohio. Ms. Goff has ambitions of improving the way metals are used, as well as how plastics decompose while impacting our environment. “My goal is to innovate a better, more cost-effective steel that could be used for building in low-income areas,” said Ellen Goff. Drew Horton, a member of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers student chapter as well as the Society of Plastics Engineers, is interested in research within anti-corrosive materials. “As I am studying Chemical Engineering, I will have a significant knowledge regarding practical chemical science which will allow me to apply chemical science to future problems,” said Drew Horton.
“We had a very difficult time narrowing down the candidates for this year’s scholarship, they were all very driven and have wonderful ambitions for their chosen field. Ultimately, we couldn’t choose just one so we chose two winners this year.”James Davidson, Owner, SprayWorks Equipment Group
