Ten students have received $10,000 in scholarships from the Pacific Forest Foundation (PFF), the educational arm of the Pacific Logging Congress. Eight of the students are attending Oregon State University and two are attending University of Idaho. This is the second year scholarships were given.
One of this year’s scholarship recipients is 20-year-old Preston Green. He’s attending Oregon State University and studying Forest Engineering. Preston says the scholarship will allow him to focus more on efforts to get his degree. “To receive the Pacific Forest Foundation scholarship shows to me that the forestry field is alive and growing.”
After graduation, Preston plans to work for a private timber company somewhere in the Pacific Northwest and at some point possible start his own consulting firm.
