Twenty active members of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) are the winners of a new one-time education scholarship established in memory of
Ann M. Byrnes, PHR, SPHR.
Byrnes, 54, was a former volunteer leader who became a staff member for SHRM. She died May 27, 2009, from an aneurysm.
SHRM awarded $19,000 in scholarships with funds from donations that SHRM members and volunteer leaders, SHRM staff, SHRM chapters and state councils, and family made to the SHRM Foundation in Byrnes’ name.
Originally, 15 $1,000 scholarships were to be awarded, but a large donation from the Colorado State Council and assistance from the SHRM Foundation made possible five more scholarships of $800 each.
SHRM CEO and President Laurence G. O’Neil and SHRM Regional Director (West) Martha Ramirez announced the winners at the Regional Council Summit in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Feb. 26, 2010. Byrnes’ sister Beth Byrnes, brother-in-law Bart Faber and nephew Bryce Faber were in attendance.
served as a field services director in SHRM’s Member Services Division in Phoenix. Prior to that, she was SHRM’s regional manager for the North Central Region based in Cincinnati. The scholarships go to active SHRM members in good standing who were State Council Volunteer Leaders in 2009 or who are serving in that capacity in 2010. The scholarships were not open to SHRM student members and local-only chapter members.
The scholarship has to be applied to a professional development program or education and used by Dec. 31, 2010. The money can be applied to HR certification; HR-related college or university classes; HR-related seminars; conferences, such as registration for the 2010 SHRM Annual Conference; and SHRM webinars. Funds may be used for multiple programs and classes.
Applicants were evaluated on their SHRM volunteer experience (50 percent); community volunteer experience outside of SHRM (30 percent); and how the scholarship money will be used for professional development (20 percent).
