Cameryn Mann has been announced as the recipient of the University of Maryland’s Choptank Transport Business Scholarship award for 2012–2013. 

 

Mann, a Lothian,Maryland native, is a University of Maryland senior majoring in finance and operations management at the Robert H. School of Business. She plans on pursuing a finance-development position at a company while working on furthering her education by obtaining an MBA or master’s degree in accounting.

 

After learning about Choptank Transport and becoming aware of the opportunities in supply chain and logistics, Mann commented, “Supply-chain management has become of paramount importance to a variety of companies’ operations. The field has been growing rapidly since the 1980s, and companies like Choptank Transport have proven to be successful in assisting their customers.”

 

The scholarship relates in several ways to Mann’s professional goals and aspirations. “Many of the company’s functions share commonalities with my studies in both finance and operation management. I would be delighted to visit the facility and see how an operation of this magnitude is properly managed,” she said. 

 

This is the first time the annual Choptank Transport scholarship has been awarded since the endowment was established. The goal of the scholarship is to provide aid to business students interested in future employment opportunities including, but not limited to, the field of transportation and logistics. The recipient is chosen by a committee of faculty, deans and program leaders from the Robert H. School of Business.

 

The award requires students to reapply every year and is available to those pursuing any business major. The application process begins in mid-March and continues through the last week of classes in early May.  For more information, go to http://advancement.umd.edu/celebration/showScholarship.php?main_id=1480
