"SHRM is committed to engaging the future leaders of the HR profession-HR and Business students. As we work to shape better workplaces where employers and employees can thrive together-we are energized by the work our student chapters are doing to encourage students to choose HR as a career path," said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, president and chief executive officer of SHRM. "Awarding this Superior Merit Award designation is just one small way for SHRM to recognize and celebrate the big steps the A&M-SA SHRM student chapter has taken this past academic year," he added. SHRM student chapters have the opportunity to earn an award based on the number of activities they complete during the merit award cycle, the most recent one of which lasted from April 1, 2018, to March 31, 2019.
