Rob Young of Pollard Banknote Limited, based in Winnipeg, has joined the Board Of Trustees for the Canadian Printing Industries Scholarship Trust Fund (CPISTF).

The CPISTF board is tasked with selecting top Canadian students in, or about to enter, post-secondary programs dedicated to the printing industry for scholarship funding. Last year, CPISTF awarded 46 students from across Canada with a combined $61,250 in scholarship funding. A total of $18,750 was awarded to 12 new students enrolled in the first year of an approved course of study. A further $42,500 was provided to 34 continuing students already enrolled in the scholarship program.

Young joins current CPISTF board members Richard Armstrong, Mary Black,
Tom Blockberger, Bruce Bond, Wayne Burroughs, Bob Cockerill, Don Gain, Michael Hill, Sean Murray, Ron Schroder, Jeff Taylor, Warren Wilkins and Willy Wilkins.

With more than 25 years of senior management experience in Canadian printing, Young currently serves as Pollard Banknote’s Executive Vice President of Operations. He oversees the manufacturing, prepress, and information systems departments at all of the company’s instant ticket production facilities. Young also sits on the board of the Manitoba Print Industry Association, as well as the Manufacturing & Technology Committee of Magazines Canada.

The Canadian Printing Industries Scholarship Trust Fund (CPISTF) was initiated in 1971 and has since provided over one million dollars in scholarship funding. All scholarship applicants must be enrolled in or plan to be enrolled in a full-time two-, three- or four-year approved program and exhibit a commitment to pursue a career in the printing industry.
