Alumni & FriendsDonna Cassese, class of 1976
In 1994, Sappi Westbrook shifted to the manufacture of release paper only. “If we’d stayed with printing and publishing, we never would have made it,” says mill manager Donna Cassese.
Not making it is anathema to Cassese, who herself represents change. The first woman to manage the Westbrook mill, Cassese grew up in the Bronx and, as a forestry major at the University of Maine, was the first in her family to attend college.
SpotlightsUMaine Woodsmen's Team Meet
The Woodsmen’s team hosted a fun and exciting Home Meet last March before respectably finishing-off the season at Dartmouth College for the Northeast Collegiate Spring Meet Championship.
Our students and faculty work hard, but every once in a while we like to get out and have some fun. Check out the photos from the first School of Forest Resources Faculty vs. Grad Students (and Friends) Fishing Tournament and Canoe Trip.
