There’s a lot of excitement around the UMaine Pulp and Paper Foundation family these days. Our very own President, Carrie Enos, was recently announced by The Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry (TAPPI) as a 2021 TAPPI Fellow! TAPPI Fellows are awarded because of their commitment and extraordinary technical or service contributions to not only TAPPI, but the entire pulp and paper industry.

Each year, the Association at TAPPI elects a small percentage of its 14,000 member engineers, scientists, managers, academics and other pulp and paper industry professionals to be TAPPI Fellows. This is a distinguished honor among its members and an honorary title to be forever proud of achieving. The title of Fellow is also given to TAPPI Board chairs, vice chairs, directors and other distinguished award recipients.

Carrie’s enthusiasm for the university, its students, the Foundation and the pulp and paper industry is unmatched and this honor is highly deserved. “I want to express my sincere gratitude to the TAPPI Association for awarding me as a 2021 TAPPI Fellow,” said Carrie Enos. “I’ve been passionate about this industry since before I even began my career with the University of Maine Pulp + Paper Foundation and I am absolutely humbled by this honor.”

To further celebrate, Carrie and the other 2021 honorees will be recognized at the Fellows Luncheon during the TAPPICon LIVE! conference on October 3-6, 2021, in Atlanta, Georgia.

The University of Maine Pulp and Paper Foundation is incredibly lucky and proud to have a President that is as dedicated to the students, university, Foundation and the pulp and paper industry as Carrie. Way to go, Carrie!
