Mallory Wyatt considered the faculty at Harbert College to be her “greatest asset and cheerleader” as she decided where to focus her business education, which companies to interview with and, ultimately, what job to take.
Wyatt, a senior in Supply Chain Management, will soon begin her career as a recycling associate at Georgia-Pacific Harmon in Green Bay, Wisc., and will represent the college as its graduation marshal August 2.
“The Harbert College of Business has so many diligent and involved students,” said the Birmingham native. “I am especially humbled to be chosen from such an elite group.
“All of my professors understood the value of applying real-life examples and projects, and I was pushed to understand the field of supply chain instead of only memorizing terms and taking tests. Marcia Gibson helped prepare me to be a professional through her Professional Development class as well as letting me sit in her office and talk to her about my future and career decisions I had to make.”
Wyatt’s experience at Auburn has been an active one. She enjoyed a six-month internship at Colgate-Palmolive as a logistics analyst and was asked by Harbert College Dean Bill Hardgrave to share that experience via presentation with the college’s Advisory Council and Emeritus Advisory Council in its Fall 2013 meeting where she said, “I was able to reinforce the value of internships for Harbert College of Business students.”
Wyatt was also an active member of the Auburn Supply Chain Management Association and social sorority Alpha Gamma Delta.
With college soon to be in her rear-view mirror, Wyatt is excited about her future.
“I am blessed to begin my first job with a company that values integrity and humility,” she said. “I hope to find my specific talents at this company, and I am excited about future opportunities with Georgia-Pacific Harmon.”
