FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - SCA, a global hygiene and forest company with local operations in Arizona, has awarded a student from Williams, Ariz., a $2,500 scholarship, as part of its annual scholarship program for children of employees. Forty-one high school seniors and college students received a combined total of $61,000 in SCA scholarships for their full-time education at an accredited U.S. or Canadian university in 2012-2013.

"Our employees have made our business what it is today," said John O'Rourke, vice president human resources, SCA Americas. "SCA is delighted to help their children strive for success by providing education scholarships to these well-deserving students. These talented young adults have demonstrated a deep commitment to their schools and communities that we are proud to support."

The SCA Scholarship winner in Arizona is Nikhail Maestas, who is attending Hanover College in Indiana. Her father works at the SCA facility in Bellemont.

Since creating its annual scholarship program five years ago, SCA has given more than $300,000 to children of its employees. The company invites all high school seniors and college students who are enrolled full-time for the coming school year and whose parents have been employed by SCA for more than one year to apply. Students must be age 24 or under to qualify.

An independent organization, Scholarship America, reviewed all the applications and selected the 41 winners, based on their academic achievements, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of goals and an outside appraisal.

SCA has nearly 260 employees in the area at its mill in Flagstaff and converting plant in Bellemont. In addition to Arizona, SCA has U.S. operations in Alabama, Kentucky, New York, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
