Winning Essays Send Two Students to National Supply Chain Conference

Neeley undergraduate students Breanna Kaldheim and Daniel Osborn wrote outstanding essays, garnering each of them each a spot at the annual Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals conference in October in Philadelphia.

Each year the Supply and Value Chain Center funds up to two students interested in supply and value chain management to attend the annual conference.  This year, 13 students, both undergraduate and graduate, applied.

The essay covered topics such as how attending the conference will contribute to the student's professional development and how the student will help the visibility of the Neeley Supply and Value Chain Center at the conference. Each student also submitted his/her classification and GPA.

Breanna is a marketing major with international emphasis. Daniel is majoring in E-Business.

"The annual conference is an ideal experience for students," says Nancy Nix, director of the Supply and Value Chain Center at Neeley. "It has been noted as one of the ultimate networking and educational experiences for those interested in logistics and supply chain management. Students can take part in networking events and local logistics facility tours, witness demonstrations of the latest logistics-related software and technology, and meet with representatives from universities, executive education programs, executive recruiters and career placement firms."
