Two University of North Florida students in the Coggin College of Business Transportation and Logistics Flagship Program received scholarships from the Delta Nu Alpha Foundation, a national non-profit organization supporting education in the fields of transportation, distribution and logistics.
Scholarships are granted by the Foundation annually to undergraduate students pursuing careers in transportation and logistics and currently studying in schools, colleges and universities with established programs in these fields. Applicants are judged on academic success; career potential, motivation and plans; recommendation and evaluation by faculty and internship; and experience related to transportation and logistics.
UNF senior Taylor Barry, a Ponte Vedra Beach resident, received the Delta Nu May Schoon Scholarship, while senior Alexis Anderson, a resident of Arlington, was awarded the Delta Nu Alpha Cathy Davis Memorial Scholarship. Both students received $2,000.
In addition to receiving the Delta Nu scholarship, Barry was recognized as the Propeller Club of Jacksonville Student Port Member of the Year for 2011-2012. She has served on the executive board of the UNF Transportation and Logistics Society for the past year as marketing director and was elected to serve as president for 2012. Currently, she currently works as an executive truckload specialist for Corporate Traffic Inc., a third-party logistics company, and plans to graduate this fall with a bachelor’s degree in Transportation and Logistics.
Anderson is currently employed by Jacksonville Maritime Association, as well as Stein Mart Corporate, working in their supply-chain transportation department. She is a member of the UNF Transportation and Logistics Society, where she serves as the assistant marketing director and is a recipient of the Transportation Club of Jacksonville Scholarship. She plans to graduate next spring with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Transportation and Logistics.
UNF’s Transportation and Logistics Flagship Program offers a unique and rewarding program for students electing to major in transportation and logistics. The program prepares students for challenging careers in supply chain management, international logistics, transportation and physical distribution.
