Hartley Selected for APICS Top Student Chapter Mentor Award & Honored by Ohio Magazine

Our faculty, staff, and students in the supply chain management program continue to be selected for national and international recognition.  Dr. Janet Hartley, management professor and director of the BGSU Supply Chain Management Institute, is the latest to be honored by APICS, the leading professional association for supply chain and operations management.  She has been selected as the recipient of the 2014 Student Chapter Mentor Award which recognizes superior leadership and exceptional contributions as a mentor to a local student chapter.

Jessy Ventura, district field associate for APICS, gave high praise to Dr. Hartley in his notification message. “Your demonstrated commitment to Toledo Chapter, steadfast leadership in the APICS community, and dedication to Bowling Green State University merit this prestigious award.”  He adds that Dr. Hartley’s mentoring has “helped to inspire many students to pursue APICS membership and volunteerism.”

In addition to the international APICS award, Dr. Hartley is being recognized by Ohio Magazine’s Excellence in Education edition, honoring the state’s top college and university professors. The supply chain management professor will be featured in the December issue.

This is not the first time that a BGSU faculty or staff member has received an APICS mentor award.  Dr. Amelia Carr, professor and chair of the management department, received the award in 2012 and Ms. Karen Eboch, senior lecturer in the management department, was selected in 2008. Retired management department administrative assistant, Karen Williams, was given the mentor award in 2010.

In addition to the Student Chapter Mentor Award winners, one of our supply chain students, Elizabeth Albers, was selected for the 2013 Student Voluntary Service Award presented by APICS. BGSU has also had students awarded the prestigious R. Gene Richter Scholarships six out of the last eight years. This award is given to the most promising supply chain talent in the country.
