Supply Chain Management Scholarship RecipientsStillman School of Business students Dawn Jaeckel and Shamir Goicochea receive scholarships from the Containerization & Intermodal Institute, the nonprofit dedicated to promoting and supporting international trade and the intermodal container transportation community.  

Jaeckel, a second-year MBA student with a concentration in supply chain management, will receive a $5,000 scholarship. Goicochea, a Stillman senior majoring in business administration and finance, will receive a $1,000 scholarship. The scholarships are sponsored by the United States Maritime Alliance and the New York Shipping Association, respectively.

Jaeckel participated in the Micah Seminar on business leadership this fall and works as a full-time project manager for Jackson Hewitt. She completed her bachelor’s degree 15 years ago, before deciding to pursue a graduate degree at the Stillman School.

"I feel honored to have been selected for this scholarship," Jaeckel said. "It certainly helps to ease the financial burden of paying for school at the same time as the mortgage and other bills. I also appreciate the recognition of my hard work and academic achievements. I value my education and look forward to the next step in my career, ideally in the supply chain management sector."

Goicochea has received countless other awards and scholarships while at Seton Hall, including a University scholarship, the NJ TAG, EOF grants, Federal SEOG, Federal Pell Grants, the Joseph-Carmen Ana Unanue Scholarship and the Ford Blue Oval/NPRC College to Career 2011 Spring Semester Latino Essay Contest Scholarship.

Both students will be honored at the 2013 Connie Awards on Monday, December 9, at the Newark Club. They will be honored along with H. Winchester Thurber III, CEO and chairman of Norton Lilly International, the oldest shipping company in America. During the awards ceremony Jaeckel and Goicochea will receive their scholarships and have the opportunity to network with more than 300 industry leaders and professionals.

Jaeckel and Goicochea join a growing list of Stillman School students winning awards in supply chain management, including Sean Rainford, Stillman MBA student, who won first place in the 2013 Rhoda Isaacs Scholarship in Supply Chain Management competition and Wambui Gathu, who was awarded the Institute of Supply Chain Management - Capital One Scholarship.
