Westlake Chemical Corporation has recently notified 35 sons and daughters of employees throughout the company that they are recipients of a Westlake Scholarship beginning the fall term of 2009.

This annual award of scholarships continues Westlake's long-standing support of the continuing education endeavors for high school students of company employees. Scholarships are generally renewable for up to four years of undergraduate study provided the student maintains specific high academic standards.

David R. Hansen, Westlake's Senior Vice President, Administration stated in describing this years' applicants, "We are pleased to be able to recognize and reward high achieving college bound students of our employees. This is the 13th consecutive year we have granted these awards. We believe this important tradition has a positive impact in our communities and our workplace.

The competition for these scholarships is consistently strong and the applicants are some of the most outstanding students in each of the communities in which we operate. The average recipient for 2009 has a GPA of 3.7 and ranks in the top 15% of their senior class. This includes 5 students with GPA's of 4.0 and two ranked number 1 in their class.

Moreover, many of these scholars have made significant contributions through numerous volunteer and civic activities. We congratulate the students and their parents for the significant accomplishments in the classroom and the communities in which they live."
