Quanex revealed its 2022 Bill & Iris Griffiths Scholarship and William A. McHattie Scholarship winners. The scholarships are made possible by the Quanex Foundation.
The Quanex Foundation’s Scholarship Program provides scholarships to students of Quanex employees. The program supports four-year and two-year college students and vocational or technical school students. Winners were chosen based on several criteria, including academic accomplishments, community service and extracurricular activities.
“Congratulations to these students and their families, who have worked so hard to get to where they are today,” says George Wilson, Quanex president and CEO. “From everyone at Quanex, we couldn’t be prouder of their achievements and wish them all the best as they take these next steps for their future.”
