ISM announces recipients of Supply Management Scholarships
May '08
Seven recipients of R. Gene Richter Scholarships were honored May 5, 2008 at an awards dinner held during Institute for Supply Management's (ISM) 93rd Annual International Supply Management Conference and Educational Exhibit in St. Louis. Each year, Richter Scholars are guests of ISM at its Annual Conference.

Now in its fifth year, the R. Gene Richter Scholarship Program has grown to be the largest nationally recognized scholarship program in the field of supply chain management. The program identifies the future leaders of supply management and fast-tracks them into the profession.

Winners receive tuition assistance of up to $5,000 and are also offered the benefits of two mentoring programs: the Executive Mentoring Program, which pairs the student with an established executive; and the Junior Mentoring Program, which pairs the student with a young professional from a former Richter Scholar Class.

The R. Gene Richter Scholarship Program was established in memory of supply management innovator and leader R. Gene Richter. Richter is admired for elevating the profession to world-class stature. He led the supply organizations at The Black & Decker Corporation, Hewlett-Packard and International Business Machines (IBM).

Supply management scholars honored at the R. Gene Richter Scholarship Awards Dinner include:
Christina Andreadakis - Andreadakis is entering her senior year at Duquesne University. She will be spending summer 2008 asan intern with Under Armour's Rookie Program. Andreadakis is preparing to graduate in May 2009 with a bachelor of science degree in business administration with a concentration in supply chain management.
