Business Student Recipient of Supply Chain Management Honor
Zawadi Dismuke
Washington (May 20, 2014) - Howard University School of Business student Zawadi Dismuke was recently selected as a 2014 R. Gene Richter Scholar, an honor that carries $5,000 in tuition assistance and access to industry mentors. She was recognized at the Institute for Supply Chain Management (ISM) 2014 convention in Las Vegas, May 5-7.

Dismuke, a junior who majors in supply chain management, has a 4.0 GPA. She has been recognized by the National Society of Collegiate Scholars and as a Howard University Legacy Scholar and a Buick Achievers Scholar. She has participated in numerous extracurricular activities while at Howard, including service as vice president of membership for the Alpha Kappa Psi Professional Business Fraternity.

“As I studied more about the field, I realized how much the problem-solving and analyzing skills required in supply chain management fit my personality,” Dismuke said.
After graduation in May 2015, Dismuke said she intends to gain professional experience and then pursue an M.B.A. in supply chain management.
The R. Gene Richter Scholarship Program was established and named in memory of Richter, who was a galvanizing force in the field of procurement and is admired for elevating the profession to world-class stature. He led the supply organizations at The Black & Decker Corporation, Hewlett-Packard and International Business Machines (IBM). For information on the R. Gene Richter Scholarship Program, visit
