Three Clemson Packaging Science seniors were recently recognized at the CAFLS Outstanding Senior Recognition Ceremony and Reception for each of their strong academic career and dedication to the packaging science program. The recipients were selected by packaging science faculty members and were honored Friday, April 13 at 4:00 PM at the Clemson University Outdoor Lab. Allison Littman and Erin Snyder both received the Harris Smith Faculty Choice Award, while Andrew Rabley was a recipient of the Packaging World Outstanding Packaging Science Senior Award.
Allison Littman is a native of
Nashville, and is very interested in sustainable packaging, particularly
environmental engineering. Through her involvement with Dr. Kay Cooksey’s
Creative Inquiry team, she applied sustainable packaging to compostability and
biodegradability research. She has held several packaging science internships
during her time at Clemson, allowing her to learn more about the field of
sustainable packaging. These include stints at Dean Foods (Denver, CO),
Ecovative Design (Green Island, NY), and Hewlett-Packard (Palo Alto, CA). While
at HP, she even filed a patent and published a paper, titled, “Exploring
Advanced Metering Infrastructure Deployments for Commercial and Industrial
Sites”. Allison’s career goals involve “discovering how sustainability
initiatives can be effectively applied to packaging concepts to create
measurable and profitable results”.
