In a moving program, the Weyerhaeuser Giving Fund honored the memory of longtime employee Jim Leist, with the establishment of the Weyerhaeuser Giving Fund/Jim Leist Memorial Endowed Scholarship  in the Auburn University School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences.  Representatives from Weyerhaeuser and Leist’s family presented Interim Dean Graeme Lockaby with $75,000, which will establish and endow the scholarship for students interested in forestry or forest engineering. Leist, who passed away in 2014, was a 1982 graduate in forest engineering.

 

“We are thrilled that Weyerhaeuser has decided to partner once again with the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences by supporting our students through scholarships and honoring the memory of Jim Leist,” said Heather Crozier, director of development for the School.

 

Weyerhaeuser is one of the largest manufacturers of wood and cellulose fiber products.  The Weyerhaeuser Giving Fund is the philanthropic arm of the company, dedicated to nourishing the communities where employees work and live. Speaking for Weyerhaeuser, Rhonda Hunter, Weyerhaeuser’s Senior Vice President for Timberlands, said that Leist’s commitment both to Auburn University and to mentoring others in the industry led to the establishment of this scholarship as an appropriate way to honor his legacy.
