Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

The Pulp and Paper Safety Association (PPSA) will award John Sunderland, of Buckeye Technology, the first ever PPSA Distinguished Service Award. The PPSA Distinguished Service Award was established in 2013 to recognize Sunderland for his voluntary leadership and service and will be awarded to anyone who has performed outstanding service to the association.

"We were honored to be able to present John with this award. He has shown a dedication for this association and has helped us through challenging times," said Pete Masias and Monty Batchelor, PPSA Awards Committee and Board of Directors members.

Sunderland has served on the PPSA Board of Directors for a number of years and in that time he took an association that was heading for financial disaster and stepped in to provide the needed administration that literally saved the association. It is that dedication to PPSA that allows PPSA to remain the most respected safety association in the pulp and paper industry.

The award will be given to Sunderland at the 70th Annual Health and Safety Conference in Williamsburg, Va. Registration is currently open for this event. More information is available online.
The Pulp & Paper Safety Association is a non-profit, non-political, international organization, devoted to the continuous improvement of safety throughout all aspects of the paper industry. From forest products to paper mills, to converting plants, to recycle collection centers, our membership is grouped by category to ensure a fair and appropriate basis for comparison.
