PAN APICS Presents the 2019 Janet Hillier Scholarship

For the first time, the PAN-APICS Chapter is proud to present the Janet Hillier Scholarship. This scholarship has been created in memoriam of former PAN-APICS volunteer, Janet Hillier. A volunteer for over 30 years, Janet was a fixture on the PAN APICS Board of Directors, in the classroom as an educator, and at PAN-APICS events. The PAN-APICS chapter and our members are forever indebted to her for her time spent advancing supply chain and operations management with the APICS name in this region. Janet passed suddenly in 2015 and will forever be missed.

PAN-APICS encourages students to pursue higher education towards furthering their career in Supply Chain Management. The Janet Hillier Scholarship will award $2,500 towards any educational expenses, including books & supplies to one student per year. The winner of the Scholarship will be selected by the PAN-APICS Board of Directors and awarded at the PAN APICS Top Management & Awards Night on June 12, 2019. Funds will be dispersed directly to the student and can be used towards any educational expenses, and not restricted to tuition only.
