  Ashley is the daughter of Debra and Paul Fleck. Debra is an Application Systems Consultant at Georgia-Pacific's Atlanta headquarters. At Eagles Landing High School, Ashley was valedictorian of her high school class and the STAR student of all the high schools in Henry county. She was also the starting goalkeeper, forward, and MVP for the school's soccer team. She will attend Georgia Tech in the fall, majoring in Biomedical Engineering in hopes of becoming a physician.

  The Georgia-Pacific Foundation Scholarship Program for Employees’ Children awards $2,000 per year for up to four years of full time college undergraduate study or until baccalaureate degree requirements are completed, whichever occurs first, for a total maximum award of $8,000.

  Since the scholarship program began in 1988, Georgia-Pacific has awarded 1,350 scholarships totaling nearly $11 million. The program is administered by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation and is open to children of all active, full-time employees of Georgia-Pacific in the United States.

  “Georgia-Pacific is proud to support the academic achievements of our employees’ children for more than 25 years through this program,” said Curley M. Dossman, Jr., president of the Georgia-Pacific Foundation. “We’re investing in the success of our young people and looking forward to the many contributions they will make as professionals and citizens in their communities.”

  Across the country, Georgia-Pacific supports a wide array of community-based educational programs that help transition students from school to the workforce with scholarships, job readiness training and technical programs. Georgia-Pacific believes in helping people with the skills needed to succeed and move forward in today’s workplace.

  Based in Atlanta, Georgia-Pacific and its subsidiaries are among the world’s leading manufacturers and marketers of bath tissue, paper towels and napkins, tableware, paper-based packaging, office papers, cellulose, specialty fibers, nonwoven fabrics, building products and related chemicals. The company employs approximately 35,000 people directly, and creates nearly 130,000 jobs indirectly. Founded in 1958, the Georgia-Pacific Foundation has four key investment areas – education, community enrichment, the environment and entrepreneurship.
