UW-S alum Cynthia Galdino won this CSCMP Scholarship in 2005:

It was an honor to be chosen for the 2005 Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) scholarship. It is truly wonderful and exciting to be part of an organization so dedicated to the advancement of our industry. This scholarship means so much to me, not only because of the support and investment by CSCMP, but also as a tremendous opportunity to meet and learn from the people that make up the CSCMP organization.From business school and working as a logistics assistant at Fiat Allis in my home country of Brazil, to attending the University of Wisconsin Superior, where I will be completing my degree in Transportation and Logistics Management, it has been a wonderful and exciting journey. As I begin making the transition from a student to a logistics and transportation professional, I look forward to working with, learning from, and contributing to the CSCMP organization for many years to come. Thank you CSCMP!

Sincerely,Cynthia Galdino
