Announcing Clemson award winners

For Fall 2016, Clemson University has announced that Paul Dunnavant is the Packaging World Outstanding Packaging Science Senior, while Wayne Stevenson is the Dr. Robert Testin Outstanding Packaging Science Senior.

Dunnavant plans to graduate in December with a B.S. in Packaging Science and a minor in Business Administration. During his time at Clemson, he completed an 8-month co-op rotation with BMW Manufacturing in Greer, SC, as well as a summer internship with the environmental department at AECOM in Greenville, SC. Additionally, he worked as a packaging design contractor with Package InSight in Greenville, SC. Over the past four years, he has participated in a number of Packaging Science Creative Inquiries and design competitions, received the Paperboard Packaging Alliance Scholarship, and was the director of marketing for the Packaging Jamboree Committee. After graduation, Paul plans to pursue a career in the automotive industry.

Stevenson was born and raised in Elkhart, IN; however, he has called Upstate South Carolina his home for 8 years now. He’s always had interests in the sciences and design, which led him to enter Clemson University in pursuit of a Mechanical Engineering degree. Over the course of his freshman year, he was introduced to the Packaging Science degree program and determined that it was a much better fit for his interests. Currently, he is completing a B.S. in Packaging Science with a minor in Business Administration and has maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout his studies. He completed a co-op with Package InSight, LLC in 2015 as a project manager, concentrating on consumer biometric research projects. For Wayne, “nothing is more rewarding than seeing a project through from beginning to end and knowing your efforts had a meaningful impact.”
