HR student chapter wins Superior Merit Award

October 4 2007

The Society for Human Resource Management, or SHRM, has recognized students at Indiana State University and Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College with a 2006-2007 Superior Merit Award for their Wabash Valley Collegiate chapter of SHRM.

This is the fourth year in a row that the chapter has received this honor for doing “an outstanding job of providing opportunities for growth and development to student members,” according to the Society.

The chapter has 50 members comprised of students from both ISU and SMWC. They are supported by both institutions, as well as the Wabash Valley Human Resources Association and ISU’s College of Technology.

“Our student chapter demonstrates a dedication and commitment to the human resources profession, and we are very proud of their efforts,” said Carole Yaw, assistant professor of industrial technology education and faculty advisor to the chapter from ISU.

The SHRM student chapter merit award program recognizes achievements in four broad areas: professional operation of the chapter, professional development of the members, support of the profession, and partnership with the Society for Human Resource Management.

“Our students are very involved in the chapter, the community, and other campus organizations,” said Frank Whittle, assistant professor of business and faculty advisor from SMWC.

The chapter is actively involved in Let’s Get Real, Toys for Tots, Salvation Army Bell Ringers, local mini-seminars, job shadowing, internships, the state of Indiana HR games competition, and the Indiana SHRM state conference and regional conference.
