2014/2015 Scholarship Winners


2015 brought a change in the way MHMS Chicagoland gave out our annual academic scholarships. Noreen Ryan, VP of Education for MHMS Chicagoland Chapter (pictured above, with winners) is also a Past President of the Chicago Roundtable of the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), and currently member of the Roundtable���s advisory Board of Directors. This opened the door for the two organizations to join forces with the CSCMP to give as many supply chain education students a chance to win. All three winners were invited to join MHMS, and were awarded student membership in CSCMP along with admission to the CSCMP Chicago Annual Seminar, taking place on June 3, 2015 in Naperville, IL.

At that event, the winners were announced to the public. They are:

First Place: Minya Shen-IIT

Minya is working on her degree in Industrial Technology and Management with a specialization of Supply Chain Management. As she said in her information: "I may not the best, but I try to do the best."


Second Place: Jie Yang-Northwestern

Jie Yang is a 4th year Ph.D. candidate at Northwestern University. With a focus on transportation, Jie���s research is about solving network optimization problems, applying statistical forecasting models in revenue management and developing networks for logistic and airline companies to achieve cost reduction, revenue increase and market penetration.


Third Place: Huayan (Sunny) Lin-IIT
