“I am honored and grateful to be chosen as a recipient for the Henkel Scholarship,” said Liz Napier, daughter of Bob Napier, Key Account Manager for Henkel Adhesive Technologies. “I will be starting at Washington and Lee University this year, and the money provided by the Henkel Scholarship helps my family pay for my education and allows me to focus on my education, studies abroad, and internship opportunities in the future.”
The 22 students receiving the scholarship this year embody Henkel’s purpose to be pioneers at heart for the good of generations. They have excelled in their educational endeavors and shown themselves to be leaders at school and in the community. Congratulations to this year’s recipients!
