Emily Sterrett Memorial Scholarship

The SVSHRM Board has established a scholarship in memory of a long time SVSHR Member and board chair, Emily Sterrett. Emily passed away in October of 2013 after a long battle with cancer. She was an active member in our chapter and served as co-chair of the SVSHRM Certification Committee for over ten years. Emily was responsible for and directed the Essentials of Human Resources class and the PHR/SPHR study course through SHRM.  With this, the board has decided to offer two scholarships in her memory; one for admission for the EHRM course, and one for admission for the SHRM Learning System course.

To be considered, applicants should submit a document of 250 words or less informing the SVSHRM Board why they are taking the course and why they should be selected for the scholarship. Please submit your materials electronically to: Chuck Flick at
The deadline to submit your document for scholarship consideration will be announced each year, in tune with the scheduled preparation course.


For 2016:

We awarded the 2016 SHRM Learning System scholarship to Molly Boese, HR Assistant at Park View Credit Union.

The scholarship application deadline for the EHRM course is September 15, 2016.   The course does not start until September 26 so there would be time to award the scholarship and then the recipient could register for the EHRM program. The scholarship covers the $499 registration fee.
