Senior supply chain management student Devan Dunneback was recently awarded the Inbound Logistics Scholarship from APICS and the L.L. Waters Scholarship from APICS.
The Inbound Logistics Scholarship is awarded to one undergraduate student each year. Students are asked to write an essay on why they chose a career in logistics and supply chain and how they believe that career will impact the company they choose to work for and the greater economy. The scholarship was put in place in order to continue to support the achievement of the impact of logistics education on a global business scale. Devan was announced as the awardee in the September edition of Inbound Logistics.
Devan was also announced as the recipient of the L.L. Waters Scholarship during the APICS conference on September 27th in Washington, DC. It was noted by the Trustee of the L.L. Waters Program, David Yeley, that this year they had a record number of applicants and they were most impressive. The L.L. Waters Scholarship was implemented in order to honor the late L.L.
