Eleven stand-out graduating high school seniors were the deserving recipients of Lam’s 2015 Core Values Scholarships. For the 13th consecutive year, the $10,000 awards were presented to students in Fremont, California (our headquarters), as well as in the Livermore, California, and Portland, Oregon, areas, where we maintain manufacturing plants. Since 2003, more than $700,000 in scholarship funds have been provided through the Lam Research Foundation, our charitable giving organization.
One of the ways we distinguish our company from others is in how we demonstrate our Core Values. These values – which include achievement, honesty and integrity, innovation and continuous improvement, mutual trust and respect, open communication, ownership and accountability, and teamwork – are what we believe, practice, and reward as important to our continued success. With this in mind, community leaders and Lam representatives looked at how students demonstrated these values, along with academic achievement, and school and community involvement.
