Building the World
PROVO, Utah – Mar 03, 2020 – Every year, as summer fades and leaves begin to change, a new group of students is welcomed into the global supply chain management program at the BYU Marriott School of Business. While some see GSCM as only as one of many programs across BYU, Scott and Carmen Moscrip see these global supply chain students as building blocks to a better world.
In 1995, Scott founded Truckstop.com, an online trucking marketplace that matches truck drivers with freight, offers services to advance driver or company pay, and verifies carrier integrity regarding safety and compliance matters. Scott now serves as a board member of the company, which has more than four-hundred and fifty employees and seven physical locations across the United States and Canada.
The success of Truckstop.com has provided the Moscrips opportunities to give back and help build the future leaders of the supply chain industry at BYU Marriott. Since 2014, Scott has served on BYU Marriott’s Global Supply Chain Advisory Board, providing years of service to the program in advising both GSCM professors and students. In 2019 the Moscrips also became members of BYU Marriott’s National Advisory Council.
As part of their efforts to provide support and opportunities for supply chain students, the couple recently funded an endowment for the students of the global supply chain management program at BYU Marriott and plan to add to the endowment over the next three years. “The Moscrips’ endowment is going to bless the lives of undergraduate students for years to come,” says Scott Webb, an associate professor in the GSCM program at BYU Marriott. “The expectation in the global supply chain management program isn’t just that you graduate and get a great job,” says Webb. “We’re here to build the world.”
During its annual awards dinner in Fall 2019, the GSCM program honored the Moscrips and their contributions to the program. Speaking of the Moscrips’ service and contributions to building the program, BYU Marriott GSCM department chair Tom Foster shared that the Moscrips “have provided leadership and guidance in how we approach our students and how our program should grow.”
The awards dinner provided the Moscrips an opportunity to see the growth and evolution of the GSCM program firsthand. “Seeing how many people were at the event and how the program has grown was incredible,” Carmen Moscrip says. “It was wonderful to see how hard the professors have worked to make this program successful, not just for themselves as academic leaders but also for the students.”
For students and alumni of the global supply chain management program, the support from the Moscrips has been a blessing, helping students graduate from the program with the knowledge and experience needed to make an immediate impact in the world of supply chain management.
“The Moscrips have been so generous,” says Renae Rockwood, a 2018 GSCM graduate who now lives in Eagle Mountain, Utah. Rockwood, who met the Moscrips when she was a junior in the GSCM program, expresses gratitude when reflecting on her time in the global supply chain program and how the Moscrips contributions to the program affected her. “The Moscrips recognize the needs of others and seek to strategically address those needs using their skills, time, and resources. As an alumna of the GSCM program, I can’t sufficiently express how grateful I am for their generosity.”
As students enter and graduate from the program each year, the impact of the Moscrips’ support will continue to be felt. For Scott Moscrip, the potential each student to be a future leader is at the core of his message to students. “It’s not just companies that need you,” he says. “The world needs you. You’re going to impact lives and people in ways that you can’t possibly imagine.”
