R. Gene Richter Scholarship Program Seeking Applicants
The R. Gene and Nancy D. Richter Foundation will provide a scholarship of up to $5,000 to individuals seeking education in the area of supply chain management-procurement for the 2006-2007 academic year.

Gene Richter led supply organizations at Black and Decker, International Business Machines, and Hewlett Packard.

Gene and Nancy D. Richter Foundation as a high-potential future leader in the procurement field. Read the full story.
