SHREVEPORT – AFS Logistics (afs.net) announces a new scholarship program that will provide financial assistance, full-time career experience and mentorship to young talent aspiring towards a career in logistics.

In addition to tuition, book and lab payments for two courses per semester covered by AFS Logistics, the scholarship recipients will learn the logistics business from experienced professionals through a full-time entry-level account coordinator position with the company.

“It is an incredibly exciting time to build a career in logistics. This program gives aspiring young professionals an opportunity to do what our team does every day – help customers solve their logistics challenges,” says Sharmen Pennington, vice president, human resources, AFS. “We have been recognized as one of the top firms in logistics and are excited to share our culture and the opportunity for success the industry holds for future professionals through this new program.”

The AFS Career Accelerator Scholarship Program is open to graduating Louisiana high school students pursuing a degree in logistics or other business-related studies at a state college in northwest Louisiana. Once in the program and having upheld the requirement of maintaining a 3.0 GPA or better, the participants get full-time work experience with the AFS team in the account management department.

In this highly engaging role, the program participants will build a strong foundation of logistics and business knowledge, all the while upholding rigorous standards for an exceptional customer experience. Through the program, the coordinator will benefit from mentorship from proven business leaders and experience the collaboration and support that comes with working as an AFS teammate.

“This investment in the success of future logistics professionals is an investment in the success of our business, too,” says Pennington. “With the industry and our business poised for such significant growth, it is imperative that companies like ours take an active role in building awareness of the opportunities that logistics can offer and that we foster the next generation of business professionals.”
