Abby Davenport was a winner in the 2017 Young Artists Competition sponsored by Professional Educators of North Carolina.

Davenport was in 12th grade at Northwest School of the Arts when she created the winning artwork. Davenport was recognized at an award ceremony at the Hampton Inn & Suites – Raleigh Crabtree Valley on September 30. Davenport was awarded a certificate of achievement and a cash prize of $50 and her art teacher, Lindsay Kelvington will receive a gift of appreciation.

Davenport’s work will appear in upcoming PENC publications.

Addie “Gigi” Jackson, a supply chain coordinator for Frito-Lay in Charlotte, was named to the manufacturer’s Circle of Champions.

Jackson developed a spreadsheet to track missing time card punches sorted by week and period, which increased visibility and decreased labor costs with more accurate lunch analysis, making her a 2017 Circle of Champions winner.

Recipients represent an elite group of supply chain associates from around the country who drive innovation and have demonstrated exceptional performance in safety, quality, service, cost, sustainability and people skills.

The Circle of Champions honor was part of National Manufacturing Day, a day created to address common misperceptions about U.S. manufacturing.
