M State student HR chapter earns national recognition

Members of the Student Human Resource Organization on Minnesota State Community and Technical College’s Moorhead campus have earned national recognition for their chapter’s activities.

SHRO received the national Society for Human Resource Management’s 2015-16 Merit Award for providing exceptional growth and development opportunities to members of the student chapter. The chapter’s advisor is M State’s HR instructor, Loren Haagenson.

SHRO’s activities during the past year included:

  • Partnering with Business Professionals of America in a successful shoe drive for Dress for Success
  • Raising funds for an HR student scholarship
  • Volunteering with M State Career Services at the campus job fair
  • Attending a state HR student conference

The mission of the 19-member chapter includes introducing students to opportunities in the field of human resources and keeping students informed of developments in the profession. Members also have an opportunity to network with human resource professionals.

In recognition of its achievements, M State’s SHRO chapter received a digital logo for use in communications and will be recognized in SHRM’s publications and at its conferences.

The national organization is the largest in the world devoted to human resource management, representing more than 275,000 professional and 20,000 student members in more than 160 countries.
