“Our long-standing support of Keep Kingsport Beautiful has been a natural outgrowth of our shared interest in the environment,” said Mill Manager Bill MacPherson. “It is our hope that when people travel along Fort Henry Drive, lined with these majestic and thriving trees, they will see them as a reflection of the vibrant community that makes up the city of Kingsport.”
Kingsport Mayor John Clark added, “We are honored to celebrate 100 years with a company that has a long-standing tradition of giving back to its community. Thank you, Domtar, for making Kingsport a greener place to live now and for the next 100 years.”
Domtar also sponsored a Kingsport Chamber breakfast on April 22, International Earth Day. Regional leaders — including state legislators, congressional representatives and the mayor — attended a celebratory luncheon and toured the mill.
