ChemSpec's Dave Moreland Supports Real Men Wear Pink

Did you know…

More than 3.5 million women are living in the U.S. with a history of breast cancer. Some of them are cancer-free, while others still have evidence of cancer and may still be undergoing treatment.

I am supporting them by wearing pink and raising money as a REAL MAN WEARING PINK!

Account Manager Moreland helps give back by helping local students attend major trade show

As many customers can attest, Lucas Moreland is a very likeable guy.  It wasn’t any different in high school, where he was popular student and athlete.  Lucas attended a local school in the small town in which he grew up, New Philadelphia High School.  He and his family have strong ties to the local community.  He now lives in the town that he grew up in, and is often still seen at local sporting events; especially varsity football games.  It would be an understatement to say he's supportive of his old high school and the local community.

Marketing Manager / Legal Counsel Wagner recently elected President of local attorney bar association

ChemSpec is proud of how its employees give back to the local community:  Chris was recently elected president of the Tuscarawas County, Ohio Bar Association ("TCBA") for the upcoming year, 2015.

The TCBA engages in various community service projects, including scholarships, Law Day, and High School Mock Trial Competitions. The TCBA also has social events for its members and opportunities for networking and professional development through committee assignments.

ChemSpec Takes Opportunity to Buy 4H Pigs and Donate to Local Homeless Shelter

On September 18th 2014, Kris Moreland of the ChemSpec team attended the Junior Livestock Sale at the Tuscarawas County fair. ChemSpec Polymer Additives purchased three hogs raised by youth members of the Tuscarawas County 4H. Drew Lautzenheiser, Mason Elliott, and Kayla Scott raised and showed the three hogs that were purchased at the auction. After the hogs are processed, ChemSpec has made arrangements for all three of the hogs to be sent to the Homeless Shelter of Tuscarawas County

President Dave Moreland's Daughter is Donating a Part of Her Liver to His Son-In-Law

Dear friends and Colleagues of ChemSpec, As most of you already know, my personal family and my ChemSpec family are very much intertwined in many ways.  Over the past 29 years of being in the rubber industry, I have developed many friendships, and many that are just beginning, which I already cherish deeply. For this reason, my wife, Kris, and I are reaching-out to you on a very personal matter. On July 8th, my son-in-law, Chris Wagner, who has been working with our team for the past one and a half years, will undergo a liver transplant at Cleveland Clinic, and my daughter, Mollie, will be the live-donor.  This is certainly a blessing, but it also creates much anxiety for the family concerning the many potential health risks for both Mollie and Chris. Over the last 11 years, Chris has battled a liver disease called Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (“PSC”); a rather rare autoimmune disease that slowly attacks the bile ducts inside and outside the liver.  In patients with PSC, the bile ducts become blocked due to inflammation, which causes lots of scarring, then cirrhosis, and finally, liver failure.  

American Cancer Society's Relay for Life

Our commitment to enriching our community often puts us in contact with people in the area who are working to make a difference in the lives of others. Recently, the Great Lakes Division of the American Cancer Society hosted a Relay for Life Event, and we were happy to rally with the cause. Along with our contribution, we thank all the researchers, caregivers, and activists who strive so valiantly to see cancer diminished and lives restored.
