The Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) TCNJ student chapter was a recipient of the SHRM Merit Award, a national award of excellence for providing superior growth and development opportunities to its student chapter members.
“As we move Together Forward, young professionals like these being honored at distinguished student chapters play a vital role in SHRM’s success,” said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, president and chief executive officer of SHRM. “I’m especially honored to thank this year’s award winners because they offer excellent evidence that SHRM’s future is indeed in good hands.”
The SHRM student chapter merit award program was created to encourage student chapters to require ongoing excellence 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.
“I know our group faces tremendous competition from local and national SHRM chapters, but this year Jeslyn (Alemany, chapter president) did an outstanding job of not only successfully guiding our chapter, but also applying for this award,” said Dr. Waheeda Lillevik, associate professor, human resources and management, SHRM faculty advisor.
