High School Students Thrive at Inaugural SCM Summer Camp
Over six days from July 9–14 at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, more than a dozen high school juniors and seniors from Tennessee and other states learned about leadership, how to prepare for college, and the benefits of majoring in supply chain management.
“The professors at UT really set themselves apart. Not only are they constantly in contact with industry professionals in supply chain and throughout the C-suite, which allows them to stay relevant, but they also take the time to care and develop relationships with them so you can continue talking with them (which I do, by the way) even long after graduation.”
