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 2016-17 Superior Merit Award for providing superior growth and development opportunities to members of the student chapter. The chapter’s advisor is M State human resources instructor Loren Haagenson.

During the past academic year, SHRO’s 17 members attended the North Dakota Student Human Resource Conference, volunteered at the campus job fair and assisted with M State student life activities. Students also had an opportunity to network with human resource professionals.

The mission of the chapter includes introducing students to opportunities in the field of human resources and keeping students informed of developments in the profession.

M State’s SHRO chapter was recognized for its achievements at the national organization’s annual conference in New Orleans in June. Of the 327 student chapters nationwide, the M State SHRO was one of 149 Merit Award winners.

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.
