    CHARLESTON, WV (LOOTPRESS) – Arclin Amines recently recognized their six scholarship recipients at J.Q. Dickinson during their annual awards banquet on Wednesday evening.

    The Arclin Amines Scholarship program provides $500 scholarships to eligible students who are pursuing a STEM-related degree at accredited universities or community colleges in West Virginia.

    In its third year, the scholarship program has awarded over $7,500 to local students. Annually, the program offers six $500 scholarships to high school seniors, current undergraduates, and graduate students studying science, engineering, technology, or math (STEM) subjects.

    Notably, two of this year’s scholarship recipients were also recipients in 2023. Arclin Amines actively encourages graduating high school seniors, as well as current undergraduate and graduate students, to apply for the scholarship program.

    Alicha Hunt, the plant manager at Arclin Amines, expressed, “We are delighted to continually provide students with this exceptional scholarship opportunity to advance their careers in STEM fields. It has been three years since we launched the program and introduced this scholarship. We take pride in consistently supporting our local students and hope to inspire more individuals to pursue their STEM passions year after year.” The scholarship recipients were selected by Arclin’s scholarship committee, which consists of members from Arclin’s Community Advisory Panel and corporate leadership team.

    This year, Arclin Amines awarded scholarships to two seniors from Riverside High, one senior from George Washington High, one senior from Charleston Catholic High, and two current undergraduate students at West Virginia University. They are:

    • Alexandria Harper from Charleston, West Virginia, is a recent graduate of Riverside High School. Alexandria will attend Marshall University, majoring in biology with an interest in becoming a surgeon.
    • Alexis Hopkins from Belle, West Virginia, is a recent graduate of Riverside High School. Alexis will attend West Virginia State University, majoring in chemical engineering with the goal of obtaining a position at a local chemical manufacturing facility, like Arclin, in the future.
    • Hayden Lane from St. Albans, West Virginia, graduated from St. Albans High School in 2023 and is currently pursuing a civil engineering degree at West Virginia University.
    • Karlee McCune from Gallagher, West Virginia, is a recent graduate of George Washington High School. Karlee will attend West Virginia University to major in forensic biology where she plans to attend medical school to pursue a career in forensic pathology.
    • Hunter Perry from Charleston, West Virginia, is a recent graduate of Charleston Catholic High School. Hunter will attend the University of Kentucky, majoring in biology with plans to attend medical school to become an anesthesiologist.
    • Kennedy Perry from Charleston, West Virginia, graduated from Riverside High School in 2023 and is currently pursuing an exercise physiology degree at West Virginia University. Kennedy’s goal is to become a doctor.

    “We believe in investing in the future of our community by supporting students who are passionate about STEM fields,” said Hunt. “Our goal is not only to provide financial assistance but also to inspire these talented individuals as they embark on their STEM-based careers. At Arclin, we are committed to supporting STEM education from the elementary level through post-secondary education in our community.”

    Arclin Amines 2025 scholarship program will open in January 2025. Information on how to apply will be released on the company’s LinkedIn page in 2025.
