PIRC Director Accepts Honor for Plastics Industry Group


C. Hank White, director of the Plastics Innovation & Resource Center at Pennsylvania College of Technology, recently accepted a 2012 Society of Plastics Engineers Gold Pinnacle Award on behalf of SPE’s Rotational Molding Division.

SPE divisions are technical groups organized around a specific process or application in the plastics industry. The Rotational Molding Division promotes technology programs and education for the industry, as well as technical conferences and networking opportunities for its members. White has served as national chairman of the division since 2009. He was honored for his three-year tenure at the Rotational Molding Division’s Topical Conference (TopCon), held in Cleveland.

“This is yet another achievement for the leaders of the Rotational Molding Division Board of SPE and a tribute to those who work tirelessly and unselfishly for the good of the rotational molding industry,” White said of the division’s board of directors.

The Pinnacle Award Program was established in 2005 to recognize sections and divisions that create and deliver member value during the year. Sections and divisions are reviewed in four achievement categories: organization, technical programming, membership and communication.
