Rick Stater, Henderson Plant Manager, says, “We are proud to give back to such a dedicated and hardworking set of students.

“Charitable giving is a huge part of Tronox’s corporate culture, and providing the means to support educational opportunities for our youth is truly rewarding for our company and employees.”
