Signing Day

With the summer season approaching, International Paper’s Red River Mill is welcoming new interns to the mill.

The Red River Mill has partnered with Red River High School to develop a program

that allows selected graduating seniors an opportunity to spend 12 weeks at the mill

learning what skills are needed to be successful. The interns will spend time in each department, learning what we do and understanding the paper mill environment and at the conclusion of the internship, they will be given the option to apply for an entry level operations position at the mill.

Congratulations to Gracie Conway, Andre Cole, Trenton Grigg, Jamarquez Jones, Jyrel Jones, Rantravious Miller, Desmond Mitchell, Keymarion Newton and Jeremiah Roberson.

To make it official, a signing day event was held at Red River High School on May 9. Parents were invited to celebrate their students and faculty members, including Trina Brown and Kelley Lee, JC Dickey, Principal Norman Picou and superintendent Alison Strong were in attendance. The students were also given International Paper pens, T-shirts and hats.

“We are thrilled to welcome our summer interns to International Paper and are excited about the contributions they will make to our company,” said Scott Lonadier, Red River Mill Manager. They are a talented and diverse group of individuals who bring a range of skills and experiences to our team, and we are committed to providing them with a valuable learning experience.”

Overall, the signing day event was a great way for International Paper to welcome their summer interns and show them how much they are valued.
