My most memorable moment at work was being able to take a tour at our International Falls mill with one of our customers. I loved getting to meet all of the people that keep that mill running and seeing all that goes into making our paper. I also appreciated getting to see the customer learn so much about Boise Paper and our commitment to the environment and sustainable forestry.
