FDP Honors 50th Anniversary Of Three Employees

FDP celebrates these two longtime employees with the presentation of two scholarships to students at a nearby high school.

FDP Friction Science, as a multi-generation family business, has always promoted the family culture throughout its operations. At the Tappahannock, Virginia, headquarters and manufacturing facility, FDP is honoring three members of the team who are celebrating 50 years at the company.

In honor of their half-century accomplishment, FDP has created a scholarship at nearby Essex High School for deserving students. The scholarships were presented at the annual Essex High Awards Night on May 27, 2021. The recipients were:

• Chynia Harris, who will be attending Virginia Commonwealth University to pursue a career in dance; and

• Emily Atkins, who will be attending Christopher Newport University and plans to work toward dual degrees in studio art and environmental science.

Each recipient received a $1,500 contribution from FDP Friction Science to further their education.

“We are very proud of these two young women and admire their goals for the future,” said John Carney, vice president of sales for FDP Friction Science. “We hope these scholarships help them on their path toward advanced education and their eventual careers. We’re honored to award these FDP Friction Science scholarships in the names of three essential members of our team who have been here almost since the time we founded the company. We are grateful to be able to recognize their accomplishments by giving back to our community in their names.”
