Breanna Schuler of the Toronto Metropolitan University, Ont., is one of the recipients of 2022-2023 FFTA Scholarship. The Foundation of FTA (FFTA), the charitable, educational and scientific nonprofit arm of the Flexographic Technical Association, awards as much as $50,000 every year to students studying flexography and graphic communications.
Five students were selected to receive a 2022 FFTA Scholarship, a $3,000 award given to high school seniors and college freshman, sophomores and juniors. They are:
- Jacqueline Bryant, Central Piedmont Community College
- Elinna Oliver, California Polytechnic State University
- Cali Scholes, University of Wisconsin-Stout
- Breanna Schuler, Toronto Metropolitan University
- John Underwood, Illinois State University
Jose Canas, a student at Central Piedmont Community College, was named the recipient of the 2022 Gary Hilliard FQC Scholarship. The Gary Hilliard FQC Scholarship, named in honour of the late Gary Hilliard, is a $2,500 grant awarded to a student to develop and execute a flexography-focused project.
“On behalf of FTA’s Scholarship Committee and staff, I am proud to recognize the six students receiving a 2022 scholarship. It is a tremendous honour and they should be proud of their achievement,” said FTA Scholarship Committee chair Kristen Shields, president of Graymills. “We worked tirelessly over the last year to ensure the association’s scholarship program aligns with its stated mission of developing students’ interest in the flexographic industry. I want to thank those individuals for their time and energy in this successful pursuit.”
