The University of Southern Indiana Romain College of Business has received a $100,000 gift from Warehouse Services Inc. in Mount Vernon to establish an endowed scholarship. The university says the Warehouse Services Inc. Barry Cox Scholarship Endowment, named for the company’s president Barry Cox, will offer support to students enrolled in the Supply Chain Management Certificate Program.
In order to be eligible for the Warehouse Services Inc. Barry Cox Scholarship Endowment, students must be enrolled full-time in the Supply Chain Management Certificate Program and in good academic standing at USI.
Warehouse Services provides supply chain services, including warehousing, distribution, and fulfillment services, and occupies more than 18 million square feet of distribution space in more than 20 locations throughout North America.
“I am truly grateful to Warehouse Services, Inc. and its President, Mr. Barry Cox, for this generous support of students seeking the new Supply Chain Management Certificate,” says Dr. Abbas Foroughi, chair of management and information sciences. “Warehouse Services’ strong interest in the certificate underscores how much regional companies value the establishment of this new program. I would also like to thank the Supply Chain Management Committee and other management faculty at USI for their hard work and support in creating this timely certificate.”
