Golfers are invited to tee off in support of a scholarship for students in the Master of Science in Operations Management program.

The second annual MSOM Scholarship Golf Tournament will take place Friday, Sept. 20, at Stonebridge Meadows Golf Course in Fayetteville. Registration is $125 per player, and the format is a four-person scramble.

"This golf tournament is an excellent networking opportunity for our students, alumni and friends, and faculty," said Blake Chapman, marketing and recruitment coordinator. "Participation in this tournament helps support future students - we've already been able to award scholarships to four deserving students, and we look forward to supporting many more."

The MSOM program recently awarded its fourth scholarship to Javier Merino.

Merino's work experience involves engineering projects and process improvement. He works at Dachser as a plant engineer and has led projects including the implementation of volumetric stations, improvement of conveyor efficiency, demand forecasting, and starting the Kaizen culture in the company. Before that role, he implemented lean concepts and improved production lines in different sectors, on behalf of Kaizen Institute.

The MSOM Scholarship Fund is made possible thanks to gifts from alumni and friends of the Master of Science in Operations Management program. All gifts made in support of the MSOM Scholarship Fund count toward Campaign Arkansas, a $1.25 billion capital campaign focused on advancing academic opportunity at the University of Arkansas.
