Five students from Ogeechee Technical College’s Logistics Management program traveled to Atlanta to attend Student Day at the MODEX 2022 expo in April.
“I had never been to the World Congress Center before, and I really loved walking around and talking to all of the companies about what they do in the world of logistics,” said BenJiyah Walker, a student in OTC’s Logistics Management program.
Student Day at MODEX 2022 was an opportunity for college, university, trade, technical, specialty, and high school students to hear from leaders in the field, meet with employers, and attend educational breakout sessions. Students in attendance gained a better understanding of the products, services, and technologies that enable supply chain management and how they are shaping the future of our world.
“I hope that we can continue to bring an increasing number of students to this event each year,” said Jillian Walton, Logistics Instructor. “Quite a few of the companies participating in the event are there to network with potential employees, and the demand for logistics and supply chain talent is very high right now and comes with rewarding pay.”
For students, one of the highlights of the trip was an opportunity to hear a motivational speech from NBA Hall of Famer, Shaquille O’Neal.
“Shaq really is bigger than life. It was really good to hear him talk about the importance of education and to acknowledge our hard work and efforts in the classroom,” Jacob Tremble, Logistics Management student.
