J.T. Eaton awards $2,000 scholarship

Purdue University student Emily Justus is the 2014 recipient of the family-owned pest solutions manufacturer's scholarship.

During the 78th annual Purdue Pest Management Conference, which takes place Jan. 6-8 in West Lafayette, Ind., J.T. Eaton will once again show its support for industry education. The Twinsburg-based integrated pest management solutions manufacturer has awarded a $2,000 scholarship to Purdue entomology student Emily Justus. The money will be presented during the Purdue Pest Control Conference Awards and Recognition Luncheon Jan. 8.

"My late grandfather, Stanley Baker, was a huge proponent of education for this industry. It's a tradition that we are pleased to continue to implement," notes Dale Baker, vice president and the third generation of this family-owned company. "Purdue has been a driving force in urban pest management education, so it's just a natural fit for us to work with their scholarship program."

J.T. Eaton's Stanley Z. Baker Foundation, named after the industry Hall of Famer, works with a wide variety of industry projects, including education and charitable work. For more information, please visit www.jteaton.com/szb.php.
