The Tulsa Chapter of the Institute for Supply Management

 (ISM) is awarding a $1,000 scholarship to

 Amanda Abell of Tulsa, a senior at Northeastern State

University majoring in supply chain management.


Abell, 32, is a material control coordinator for Linde Process Plants.  She has been there for six years and hopes that completing her bachelor’s degree will provide opportunities for promotion within the company.


“I was the first to graduate high school in my family and attend college,” according to Abell, a single mother with one biological child and four foster children


“In some respects Ms. Abell is typical of our supply chain management           students – they bring to employers and potential employers a maturity and a strong work ethic,” according to Dr. Michael Landry, chair of the NSU Department of Marketing, Hospitality, and Supply Chain Management.  “At 32 she is right at the average age of our twenty-eight majors in supply chain management.”


Beginning with just two majors in 2007, the NSU supply chain management program has graduates working at manufacturing, transportation, and other operations throughout the region including Wal-Mart, Tulsa Public Schools, Cherokee Nation, Hilti, Premier Logistics, and Lynnco.
