Alumna wins grant for RIT

Thanks to an alumna of RIT's packaging science program, RIT recently received a $5,000 grant from The Abbott Laboratories Fund.

Lori Mihalov Randall '88 was honored with the company's "Outstanding Researcher Award for achievements in the pursuit of scientific excellence." For winning the award, Randall was asked to name an educational institution of her choice to receive the grant.

"I am very proud of my RIT education, and was anxious to be able to give back to the packaging science department in this way," Randall says.

Randall, senior project leader for the Ross Products Division of Abbott Laboratories, was part of a team that developed a redesigned aseptic plastic bottle for ready-to-feed infant formula. The bottle was featured as "package of the month" in the November 2000 issue of Food & Drug Packaging magazine.

"We appreciate hearing of the success of our graduates and the continuing support of the packaging industry," says Daniel Goodwin, packaging science program chair. "This donation will help in our efforts to keep RIT's packaging science program a leader in packaging education nationally and internationally."
