LP Building Solutions

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — LP Building Solutions has awarded 56 college scholarships to the children of LP employees for the 2022–23 academic year.

The LP Scholarship Program recognizes and rewards the accomplishments of employees’ children who excel in their studies and make positive contributions in their communities.

“The LP Scholarship Program has given me an incredible opportunity to further my post-secondary education,” said first-year recipient and Northern Michigan University freshman Allison LaVarnway, daughter of LP Sagola maintenance superintendent Mike LaVarnway. “As a student pursuing my bachelor’s degree in hopes of enrolling in veterinary school, the contribution LP is providing to my education is extremely helpful. I am beyond grateful for this scholarship program whose goal is helping students like me to realize their dreams.”

Recipients are awarded up to $6,000 for four years of full-time undergraduate study or until the student has completed their academic program, whichever comes first. Twenty-two first-time recipients and 34 renewal recipients received LP scholarships for the 2022–23 academic year.

“My daughter, Emily, is a proud recipient of this scholarship,” said James Edelen, resource manager at LP’s Carthage, Texas facility. “She works very hard to keep her grades up all while also working 30-50 hours per week to pay for her additional costs of living and school. She is proud to receive this scholarship, and I am proud to work for a company willing to invest in the next generation of leaders.”

Since 2001, LP has provided more than $2.2 million in scholarships to help more than 420 students complete their undergraduate college education.

“The people are the most vital part of any successful company,” said LP senior vice president, chief human resources and transformation officer, Robin Everhart. “The LP Scholarship Program for the children of our employees, as well as the Tuition Assistance Program for employees themselves, supports not only the growth and development of tomorrow’s leaders but provides a real and tangible boost to the well-being of our LP families today. We are immensely proud of the work this year’s scholarship recipients have done in the classroom and in their communities, and we look forward to supporting them as they continue their academic journeys.”
