Logistics Students Work at Second Harvest

Logistics is important work. It's a profession that keeps complex organizations running smoothly. The Vol State Logistics program is actively involved with many local business and community organizations. Instructors George Wilson and Don Ellis put together those partnership opportunities.

On Saturday, December 10, ISM Nashville Inc. the local affiliate of the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) held its annual community service at the Second Harvest Food Bank in Nashville. An opportunity arose to ask for volunteers from the Vol State Logistics LGM 130 class to attend this event. Students Amy Radmonovich, Jeff Hartman, and Roman Williamson participated. Roman worked at Second Harvest after already working a shift at FedEx. The students learned the logistics involved in running a busy food bank operation, at an especially busy time of the year.

ISM-Nashville has been involved in many Vol State projects and also recently made a $500 donation to the Vol State TnCIS China 2012 Travel-Study program.
