TWINSBURG, OH — At the 77th annual Purdue Pest Management Conference, which took place recently in West Lafayette, Ind., J.T. Eaton once again showed its support for industry education. The Twinsburg-based integrated pest management solutions manufacturer gave $2,000 scholarships to Purdue entomology students Jeff Trembacki and Susanna Sisk.

“Giving back to the industry through education would make my late grandfather, Stanley Baker, proud,” notes Dale Baker, vice president and the third generation of this family-owned company. “He was a strong proponent for education in this industry, and is the reason why we continue to implement the Stanley Z. Baker Foundation today.”

J.T. Eaton’s Stanley Z. Baker Foundation works with a wide variety of industry projects, and the J.T. Eaton team is always interested in learning about new opportunities. For more information, visit www.jteaton.com/szb.php.
