Finley was chosen due to having the highest GPA in his graduating class as well as an outstanding rapport with his peers and faculty.
Finley graduated from Clemson in December of 2012. As an undergraduate, he participated in a Creative Inquiry course studying sustainable PLA (polylactic acid) packaging. Finley completed a co-op with P&O Packaging in Dalton, GA, during the summer and fall of 2011 and later interned with MeadWestvaco in Richmond, VA, during the summer of 2012. Finley also spent a summer abroad in Brussels, Belgium, while working towards a minor in business administration. He recently married the love of his life, Mackenzie (shown in photo here), and looks forward to returning to P&O Packaging in January, where he will start his career as a product development engineer. On behalf of everyone at Packaging World, we congratulate Finley on this recognition.
