Boy Scout Troop 120 of Owensboro, Kentucky, recently paid a visit to Domtar’s Hawesville Mill to participate in a hands-on tour and educational session. By completing the tour and learning about the history of paper and the process of papermaking, the Scouts earned their pulp and paper merit badges. The pulp and paper merit badge is one of more than 135 merit badges that Boy Scouts can earn to learn about sports, crafts, science, trades and business.
The mill’s hospitality to the troop is just one example of how Domtar nurtures knowledge, education and interest about our industry in the communities where we operate.
In the past, our mills in Bennettsville, South Carolina, and Johnsonburg, Pennsylvania, have helped area Scouts earn pulp and paper merit badges.
