Graduating a world away

Joshua Wadley Integrated Supply Chain Management Graduate

When you work in a country recovering from war, hard work and determination are crucial to meeting your goals. Joshua Wadley has never been afraid of hard work, and he applies this mindset to both his education and his work. Wadley was a member of the U.S. Army for five years, spending part of that time stationed in Afghanistan as a transportation management coordinator. He enjoyed the challenge and intricacy of the work and decided to stay in Afghanistan as a civilian contractor.
