Honoring the individuals who push themselves above and beyond to help make up the difference between good and great.

From day one, we knew that our greatest resource is our people. That is why, every year, we recognize some of the most outstanding work by our tenacious and dedicated employees. As the name signifies, the 212 Award honors those who have gone above and beyond in their work. When water reaches 211 degrees Fahrenheit, it is very hot. At 212 degrees, however, it begins to boil. The addition of this one, single degree creates steam. Steam can provide power to many things, including a pulp or paper mill.

The contributions of each of the award winners demonstrates that extra effort, that incremental degree of temperature, which provides steam and power to our organization.

Below is the complete list of our 2023 outstanding employees:
