COLUMBUS, Ohio — Scholarships of $1,000 each have been awarded to Lynn Brown of the University of North Florida and Christopher Kelly of the University of Alabama at Birmingham by the Heating & Airconditioning Ladies Organization (HALO) of the Heating, Airconditioning and Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI).

According to the association, the annual awards are intended for deserving students enrolled in post-secondary supply chain management programs leading to careers in the distribution/logistics segment of the national economy.

“Our business future and our nation’s future will indeed be in good hands with young persons such as these applicants to lead the way,” noted Don Frendberg, HARDI executive vice president. He added, “It is just short of amazing what these busy people have accomplished in their short lives, not only in school but in their communities.”

The scholarships are administered through HARDI’s James D. Wilder Foundation, which also provides grants to graduate and undergraduate students engaged in warehousing/logistics research projects as part of their academic pursuits in supply chain technology.

In addition to the HALO supply chain scholarships, a HARDI-HALO $1,000 scholarship is contributed annually to Ferris State University for a needy student in HVAC technology as selected by the faculty. And, through the David M. Lawson Memorial Fund, scholarships are made available to qualified employees of member firms.

Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, HARDI represents over 415 wholesale companies with nearly 3,500 warehouse locations in the U.S. and Canada. For more information, visit www.hardinet.org.
