Meredith College SHRM Student Chapter Receives Outstanding Student Chapter Award

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has awarded a 2014-15 Outstanding Student Chapter Award designation to the Meredith College SHRM student chapter for  providing exceptional growth and development opportunities to its student chapter members.

Meredith College’s SHRM chapter has been recognized by the national organization in previous years. Chapter advisor Kristy Dixon was the 2012-13 Society for Human Resource Management Advisor of the Year. Under Dixon’s guidance, Meredith’s SHRM chapter has received the Superior Merit Award from the national organization for more than ten years, and has been selected as a top ten student chapter. A Meredith team has also won the Southeast Regional SHRM Case Competition.

SHRM is the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management. Representing more than 275,000 professional and 20,000 student members in over 160 countries, the association serves the needs of HR professionals and advances the interests of the HR profession.

“SHRM is pleased to announce our 2014-2015 Student Chapter Merit Award winners. These chapters, led by an inspiring and dedicated group of student volunteers and chapter advisors, truly represent the future of the HR profession,” said Susan Post, Divisional Director, East and the lead for SHRM’s Student Programs. “Their achievements, which go above and beyond their everyday academic and work commitments, is commendable, and we applaud the positive impact their efforts have on their schools, the local community, and beyond. The future of HR shines bright knowing these students are among those leading the way.”

Chapters have the opportunity to earn an award based on the number of activities they complete during the merit award cycle, which ran from April 1, 2014, to March 31, 2015. 

The SHRM student chapter merit award program, which began in 1972, exists to encourage development of more effective student chapters and to promote outstanding activities and projects by student chapters in the following areas: student chapter requirements, chapter operations, chapter programming and professional development of members, support of the human resource profession and SHRM engagement.

The Meredith College SHRM student chapter will be recognized in SHRM’s publications and at its conferences.
