Sharon Barker, director of the Women’s Resource Center at the University of Maine, was interviewed for a Maine Public Broadcasting Network article on women’s advocates challenging Gov.

University of Maine alumna Carrie Enos has been named president of the University of Maine Pulp & Paper Foundation.

She replaces Jack Healy, who has held the position since 2007 and is retiring this spring.

“After an extensive national search, we are pleased to have someone of Carrie’s background and caliber to lead our organization,” says John Donahue, chair of the Pulp & Paper Foundation’s Executive Committee. “She will do an outstanding job of executing our strategic plan, working with our partners and donors, and assisting and guiding scholarship students.”

Enos and her family live in Bangor. She will begin her new role in mid-January.

Incorporated in 1950, the University of Maine Pulp & Paper Foundation manages the Consider Engineering Program, and supports 87 scholarships at both full tuition and other levels to encourage UMaine engineering students to consider a career in the pulp and paper industry.
