Testimonial from the Logistics Academy:

Tyler, a 2012 graduate from Pleasant Valley was accepted to Weber State University in Ogden Utah. He has enrolled in their Logistics/Supply Chain Management program. While Tyler was visiting Weber State for his college visit last spring, he met Shane Schvanevelt. Shane is a Professor of Management at Weber State University. Shane was very interested in Tylers's experience in the academy and of his knowledge of the Logistics field in general. He decided to visit the QCA to learn more about the program offered by EICCD and about the high school academy being offered. While here, he visited Clinton and Muscatines programs as well as our own. In May of this year, Kevin O' Hara (Cleaveland Insurance, and one of the co-chairs of the partnership) Tim Cottle -EICCD, Scott Lawrence - EICCD Professor of Logistics, and Tammy Chelf met with Mr. Schvanelvelt to discuss our programming. Mr. Schvanevelt also visited our students at Scott Community College to ask questions personally. A short tour was also organized for Shane to go to the Rock Island Arsenal. He will be able to visit with a few people from the business end of the spectrum to learn more about their involvement in the academy.
