Summer is an outstanding contributor to the SCMA department. She is the current president of SCMT and was also named the first AWESOME Excellence in Education Scholar. Summer represents SCMA in outreach events including preview and accepted student days, and at BOSS and SOVO fairs. She participated in the national Supply Chain Case Competition and received an honorable mention. Summer has ambitious plans for the future. Besides earning an advanced degree, she wants to pursue a career in sustainability and supply chain/procurement strategy. Summer also plans to write a book on how the connection between sociology and supply chain management can transform our world.

The SCMA coursework has made me very competitive against other candidates for job opportunities. I have learned how to be adaptable, predict mistakes, and be a valuable asset to many teams. This program has made me unique and stand out in a cookie-cutter world.
