The Auburn Creed Connection
Alumna Jordan Hanks (supply chain management ‘19), a senior analyst and brand advocate with Home Depot, also received support from the Salanitri scholarship while at Auburn.
“It meant a lot to me, because the Salanitri’s are so passionate about the education they received at Auburn,” Hanks said. “Rick Salanitri works for Delta Flight Products, so it was important to them to invest in a supply chain student because they had a lot of supply chain associates that lead at his company. I love to see alumni at huge companies, like Delta Airlines, be so passionate and generous to encourage students like me to get their degrees, become successful in the marketplace, and then pay it forward for the next generation.”
Hanks, a twin, was especially grateful because the scholarship helped alleviate financial burden for her parents who were sending two students to Auburn at the same time.
“Don’t ever feel too prideful to apply for scholarships. Our alumni embody The Auburn Creed and feel driven to give back to students,” she said. “Auburn students and the university would not be who we are without alumni and other donors that come alongside us to give these scholarships.”
