Elizabeth Albers, a senior business student specializing in supply chain management, has received the 2013 Student Voluntary Service Award presented by The Association of Operations Management (APICS). Beth’s award recognizes her superior leadership and exceptional contributions as a student chapter leader and a local APICS leader. It also honors her achievements in other professional and university associations and service to the community.

Jessy Ventura, District Field Associate for APICS in Chicago, praised Beth for her achievements. "Your steadfast leadership in the APICS community and dedication to the APICS student chapter at Bowling Green State University merit this prestigious award." Beth’s service award is being presented at the end of September during the International APICS Conference in Orlando, Florida.

This is not the first high-level honor Beth has received. She was one of only 10 students representing 7 universities in the U.S. to be awarded the prestigious R. Gene Richter Scholarship last spring. That award is given to students who are identified as future leaders of supply chain management.

Beth, whose hometown is Fort Loramie, Ohio, is currently interning at Kiewit in Dallas, Texas, as a procurement intern. She is minoring in German and mathematics.
