Special thanks to C.H. Robinson for sponsoring the Supply Chain breakfast.

With its ongoing effort to become an industry-leading 3PL provider, C.H. Robinson begins its leadership training with students interested in the supply chain industry. At the Rawls College, C.H. Robinson hosted a Supply Chain Breakfast for members of the Tech Supply Chain Association. The breakfast served as an opportunity to network and learn from professionals in the industry.

David Craig speaks to supply chain class.

C.H. Robinson General Manager David Craig also took time to speak with a supply chain class at the college. He discussed current industry trends, challenges of working in supply chain, and his personal experiences in the business. Students had an opportunity to learn from someone who found success after graduation and ask questions about the professional aspect of the industry.

C.H. Robinson also granted scholarships to three supply chain students in the Rawls College. Congratulations to Marcela Haddenham, Justin Turner, and Claire Williams for earning a $1,000 scholarship each, and thank you to C.H. Robinson for your dedication to the advancement of the Rawls College and its students.
