Clemson University Honors PODi
PODi, the Digital Printing Initiative, has been recognized by Clemson University’s Department of Graphic Communications with this year’s Corporate Appreciation Award. The award honors companies that have contributed significantly to the welfare of this leading center for printing leadership.
PODi was singled out for the opportunities it has made available for Clemson students to serve as conference interns at the PODi AppForum, where they were able to see digital print strategies in action, and make career connections with industry leaders. Awards were presented March 25 as part of the fifth annual Bill Treadway Print Leadership Forum at Clemson University in Clemson, S.C.
Dr. John Leininger, professor of Graphic Communications at Clemson, presented the award to Tracy Burkovich from PODi and told the audience, “PODi has given our students a unique opportunity to interact with the proactive printers that attend the PODi AppForum. The students make contacts that have helped them find successful careers in the print and cross media segments of the industry. During one AppForum two students interviewed with a vendor company and the next year they were working the table for that vendor at the Forum. This has been a win, win, win, win relationship.”
