“What does TAPPI mean to me?  People. The people in this industry are just really down the earth, really genuine people. The people I got to know through the student chapter in school were just like a family. Even after school, I still check in with my key advisor about my career, like when I’m thinking about making a move or am faced with a challenge or whatever. And we still have this great bond. So it's really great people.”

-JustOne Crosby, Technical Sales, Nalco Water, an Ecolab Company (and**former TAPPI Student Member)
