As a military-affiliated student, Hannah Schield ’19 has lived in three states and attended four colleges over the past five years in her pursuit to obtain a degree. Her hard work will come to fruition when Schield receives her business administration degree with a concentration in supply chain management from the Cameron School of Business.
"Once the requirements of my degree are completed, what ultimately matters are not the courses listed on my transcript, but the sensibilities and habits of mind that I bring to my work, friends, family, and indeed, the rest of my life,” said Schield.
According to Schield, who is CSB’s “Outstanding Graduate” for the school of business and within the supply chain program, the knowledge she has gained during her studies brings immense value to organizations.

“UNCW is an incredible community with people from all walks of life,” Borges said. “It’s a place that changes every life that ever steps foot down Chancellor’s Walk. It’s second to none.”

When Stephen Harper officially retired at the end of the spring 2018 semester, his career at UNCW spanned six chancellors, four deans and more than 40 years of teaching students the finer points of business and entrepreneurship.
