DALLAS, January 5, 2021 - Access to educational scholarships and other resources is a lifeline for students trying to fund a college education. Recognizing this need, John Galt Solutions added a second $5,000 scholarship to its $10,000 Scholarship for Future Supply Chain Leaders. After sifting through hundreds of applications, the scholarship committee selected two worthy future supply chain leaders for the awards.
John Galt is pleased to announce that Nunana Honutse, who is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Supply Chain Management with a minor in Business Analytics from Rider University, received the $10,000 scholarship award. Scott M. Devereux received the runner-up $5,000 scholarship to help fund a Supply Chain Management degree with a minor in Applied Business Data Analytics from Arizona University.
Honutse, who relies on student loans and works two jobs to pay for her education, expressed her gratitude at receiving the scholarship. “When I received the call, I cried, laughed and was grateful,” she said. “This scholarship will enable me to pay my tuition as well as go toward paying my loans. I will be forever grateful to John Galt for this awesome opportunity.”
She hopes to use her knowledge of supply chain and technology to address food insecurity. “Coming from Ghana, it has always been a dream of mine to build an NGO focused on reducing hunger,” Honutse said. “Food insecurity is an issue that affects more people than we see on the news. My NGO will focus on reducing poverty, especially in Ghana, by building a food bank or community center.”
Devereux is equally grateful for the scholarship. He has been interested in supply chain since his first job as a seasonal warehouse associate in a Target Distribution Center. He followed that role with a job as an inventory specialist at Best Buy. His work experience and 4.0 GPA recently landed him an internship with Stryker Medical Devices.
“The scholarship will embolden me to continue on my path to become a leader in supply chain,” he said. “My goal is to become a Director of Supply Chain for a company working to improve patient outcomes in healthcare. The scholarship will allow me to focus even more on my studies and campus associations, dramatically helping to improve my chances of fulfilling that dream.”
The scholarship committee noted, “Both candidates impressed us with their dedication to their education. Their hard work, combined with their academic dedication to supply chain, made us certain that granting these scholarships would help two gifted and compassionate students achieve their goals.”
John Galt Solutions wishes Nunana Honutse and Scott M. Devereux every success!
