CHILDERSBURG, Ala. – Resolute Forest Products’ Coosa Pines (Alabama) pulp mill proudly presented a check in the amount of $3,000 to the Talladega-Sylacauga Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Scholarship Foundation, Inc. on Thursday. The mill’s general manager, Pat Hogg, made the presentation to Anthony Williams, board member of the Foundation.

“Resolute’s Coosa Pines Mill is pleased to be a founding sponsor of such a worthwhile educational cause,” said Pat. “This donation will provide three graduating high school seniors with $1,000 each to further their education at the college or university of their choice.”  “We are thankful for the mill’s continued support over the past 16 years for the annual scholarship awards,” said Anthony. “This year the Foundation will be awarding 10 to 12 scholarships at $1,000 each to graduating high school senior students throughout Talladega and Coosa Counties. The awards are based on students’ outstanding academic and leadership achievements.”   Over the past 16 years, the Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi has supported over 200 young men and women from Talladega and Coosa Counties with financial scholarships totaling more than $200,000 through its foundation. The annual Kappa Alpha Psi Scholarship Foundation is an approved 501(c) 3 charitable organization.
