INTERN-al update: Welcome and Best Wishes for CSCR Student Interns

CSCR is very fortunate to work with very talented students that become part of the CSCR family during their tenure with the Center. Throughout the years, we say goodbye to our graduating senior interns and welcome our new incoming CSCR interns.

In 2017, Ryan Willson joined the Center of Supply Chain Research®  his freshman year at Smeal College of Business. In 2019 he took on the role of CSCR® social media intern.

“Over the past four years, I had the pleasure of working with amazing individuals, and I would not have traded the experience for the world,” Willson explained. “From working on small Excel projects for career fair prep to creating social media master plans, the amount of professional knowledge I got was invaluable.”

Working alongside Sharon Cox, Tracie Shannon, Jessica Bird, Jamie Corman, and Steve Tracey, Willson felt he grew both personally and professionally. The memories are those for a lifetime.

“My time at the Center not only gave me plenty of experience to share in job interviews but also gave me a close-knit family. I am so grateful for every day I got to work here.”

Upon spring graduation, Willson, a Management Information Systems major, will be starting as a Technology Analyst for Deloitte Consulting in Washington, D.C.

The CSCR team wishes you all the best, Ryan, in all your future endeavors.

Welcoming Olivia Marshall

While saying goodbye is never easy, CSCR is pleased to welcome Olivia Marshall, a junior studying Supply Chain and Information Systems at Smeal, who will be taking over Willson’s role as CSCR’s social media intern.

Marshall’s interest in all things supply chain and vast experience in social calendars, analytics, and media strategy has made her an immediate asset to the team.

“I am really excited to be working with CSCR because it combines my love and interest in the supply chain with my experience and love for social media marketing,” she said. “I have really enjoyed getting to work with the department on website updates and the upcoming summer internship highlight program. I truly want to thank Ryan for all of his help so far and wish him the best with graduation!”
