WSU junior receives national scholarship from SHRM Foundation
Wichita State University junior Paige Bornholdt was selected as a recipient of the 2012 Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Foundation Undergraduate Academic Scholarship.
She is one of 11 applicants nationally to receive the $2,500 SHRM scholarship. More than 250 undergraduate students applied for the award.
Beth McFarland, special projects manager for the SHRM Foundation, said to Bornholdt: “Your accomplishments, character, scholastic ability and leadership potential distinguished you from other applicants. The SHRM Foundation is proud to support your education and recognize you as a future leader of the HR profession.”
Bornholdt, from Kingman, Kan., is majoring in human resource management and strategic communication, with a minor in management. She is president of Wichita State’s SHRM student organization and is a human resource intern for Axiom Healthcare Services in Wichita.
The Society of Human Resource Management is an international organization with more than 250,000 human resource professional members. In 1972, WSU was one of the first universities in the nation to charter an SHRM student group.
