Philip Morris International Management SA (PMIM SA), a subsidiary of Philip Morris International Inc., is delighted to be awarding an educational scholarship to Samantha Anderson and Bethany Graham of Winchester. Samantha will attend Murray State University in Murray, Ky., this fall and plans to study pre-vet medicine. She is the daughter of Kim and Kenneth Anderson of Winchester.
PMIM SA awards financial assistance to eligible dependents of participants in its International Tobacco Procurement (ITP) program in order to assist them in furthering their education. Growers participating in the ITP program provide high quality tobacco used in PMI brands sold around the world.
"This year we have awarded these scholarships to 30 deserving students in the United States. The program is part of our commitment to support the communities where we purchase tobacco, and to help motivate these young people to achieve their career goals," said Lee Ryan, Director of Agricultural Programs.
