Repeat recognition for Clemson student chapter of HR society
For the second consecutive year, a human resources professional society has recognized Clemson University’s student chapter with its highest award.
The Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) has presented Clemson University’s student chapter with its Superior Merit Award for providing growth and development to Department of Management students in the College of Business.
Kathy Clark, faculty adviser for the Clemson chapter, credited student leaders for the achievement.
“Credit is due our chapter officers for receiving the society’s highest award for the second consecutive year,” said Clark, a management lecturer. “Their leadership and tireless commitment to providing development opportunities were the reason our chapter met or exceeded the award requirements again.”
SHRM student chapters have the opportunity to earn awards based on the number of activities they complete during the merit award cycle, the most recent one of which lasted from April 1, 2018, to March 31, 2019.
Last year’s chapter leadership team included, Morgan Reeves, president; Rebecca Jenkins, vice president and Joesy Ott, communications officer/treasurer.
The Clemson chapter was cited for providing its student members with numerous opportunities to learn about careers in the field of human resources. One of the chapter’s popular activities is the Shadow Program with the Greenville SHRM Chapter, where students are matched with an H.R. professional for a day of shadowing.
In addition, chapter meetings provide career advice by H.R. professionals, along with assistance enhancing their resume and interviewing skills. Each semester, chapter members support the campus food pantry through a food drive.
