Plants & Processes ShowcaSing Flexo education Educational initiatives in flexographic print circles extend far beyond the virtual realm. That’s why, in this Forum / INFO*FLEX edition, FLEXO is proud to feature: • A full schematic of INFO*FLEX ’s Educational Pavil- ion, page 44. • Brief historical recaps of every High School and Col- lege Phoenix Challenge Competition, page 45. • A list of pertinent program highlights at Forum that should be of interest to educators and students alike, page 44. • The first installment in a two-part series of detailed technical reports showcasing the research of a recent Rossini Scholarship winner, page 46. The presentation is designed to showcase educa- tion’s role in the packaging professional’s career path, as well as today ’s essential training techniques, which are devised in large part to ensure that we print better packages tomorrow.

(Feb. 2011); and Hood Packaging, Minneapolis, Minn. (Feb. 2011). Reports from the field indicate that the program is filling an important void and living up to the promising potential that benefactors and sponsors Ron and Katherine Harper, found- ers of Harper Corporation of America and its subsidiaries, associated with it in 2007 when they provided a substantial start-up grant. Their words, spoken then, ring true today. “ We are delighted to see FFTA [Foundation of Flexographic Technical Association] take such a significant step forward in flexo education. We believe this will prove to be one of the most important projects ever undertaken by the organization and that it will make a significant positive difference in the success and lives of both current and future flexographers. The idea of standardizing curriculum and the learning pro- cess, plus offering an accreditation program, is indeed a sig- nificant step toward enhancing the skills of current employees and upgrading the skill level of students. “ We believe that the key to any successful endeavor is education. That is why we choose to support education in an industry that has been so good to us and to an association that has been one of the primary resources for our education for nearly 50 years. We applaud the vision and determination of FFTA for developing this program. We believe TEST can make an unbelievable difference in the future global quality and growth of the flexographic process.” n www.flexography.org april 2011 FLEXO 33
