To be eligible, students must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate transportation, logistics or supply chain program at an accredited four-year college or university in the United States and must be planning to pursue a career within these fields. Qualified students will have a cumulative G.P.A. of 3.0 or higher. Selection will be based on academic achievement, demonstrated commitment to and passion for the industry, and financial need. Previous applicants and recipients are welcome to apply.

A Leader in Logistics Education

Terry L. Priest was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Colorado Transportation Community for his dedication to transportation education, and he held the highest leadership positions at the American Society of Transportation and Logistics. He taught at the University of Colorado at Denver after a distinguished career in corporate commerce, traffic management and other industry positions.

Throughout his career, Priest was dedicated to providing learning opportunities in transportation, logistics and supply chain careers. It is fitting, then, that after he passed away in 2002 at the age of 60, the Denver Transportation Club launched the scholarship fund in his name with donations made by friends and associates. Over $35,000 has been granted in a legacy of Priest’s commitment to transportation, logistics and supply chain academics.

CAP Logistics’ Vice President of Sales and Marketing, John Boner, serves on the Board of the Terry L. Priest Scholarship. “Supply chain, logistics and transportation are essential for strategic global economic development. It is an honor to advance Terry’s efforts toward a skilled and passionate workforce in these fields. Professionals, educators and students in Colorado and beyond move the industry forward because of dynamic, devoted leaders like Terry.”
