Lauren Doyle, a junior at Lindenwood University, recently won first place in a scholarship contest sponsored by the National Human Resource Association. Her awards included a $1,000 check, a full year of paid meeting dues, and an honorary plaque.
Entrants from the St. Louis Area with a minimum GPA of 3.5 were required to submit an essay detailing why they had selected Human Resources as a major, as well as their plans for working in the field upon graduation. Civic involvement and letters of recommendation also were considered.
Doyle is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Human Resource Management at Lindenwood University. She plans to seek employment experience before pursuing a master’s degree in Health Administration.
