Peter Veglahn Memorial Scholarship

Dr. Peter Veglahan was instrumental in the life of Shenandoah Valley SHRM. He brought humor and a desire for education. Pete was instrumental in raising funds for this scholarship. He would dress up in a suit and carry around a musical instrument case to get individuals ‘inspired’ to contribute. In addition he led many individuals through the HRCI preparation course.

The college scholarship is intended for individuals who are pursuing a career in human resources. An individual must be enrolled in an HR or HR related degree program. The student must also reside within the SVSHRM membership area. Additional information and to apply for the scholarship can be found at

Application deadline is April 30!


SHRM Foundation

Veterans at Work Certificate Program

The Veterans at Work Certificate, developed for HR professionals, hiring managers, and front-line supervisors, is a multi-faceted program from the SHRM Foundation and brought to you with generous support from Comcast NBCUniversal. Through this certificate program you will:

  • Learn the value that skilled veterans bring to the civilian workplace

  • Demonstrate your commitment to attract, hire and retain these talented professionals

  • Earn 10 professional development credits toward your SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP recertification

The Veterans at Work Certificate is completely free and open to all. You do not need to be a SHRM member, and you do not need to hold a SHRM credential to earn this certificate. However, if you are interested in joining SHRM or earning your HR certification, we highly recommend both. When you join SHRM, you also become eligible to apply for several SHRM Foundation scholarships and grants.
