SHRA announced the winner of the 2019 LeRoss Parker scholarship today at its monthly member meeting. This year's winner of the $500 scholarship is Rhonda McLaughlin, HR Director for Home Instead Senior Care. Rhonda's 20+ year career spans experience in retail and healthcare. She came to Home Instead Senior Care in 2015 as a part-time HR assistant, admin coordinator and caregiver and has progressively moved up to her current role as HR Director earlier this year. Rhonda plans to use the scholarship money to pursue her SHRM certification and she has attend SHRA's study course this fall. 

"The company I work with is a person-to-person business," Rhonda said. "We provide caring and compassionate care to the aging population in Southwest Florida. To continually improve and maintain the highest quality of care to our clients, we must also strive to offer that same conscientious care to our employees. By enhancing my human resource knowledge, I can ensure our company meets both of these goals."

Named after the scholarship founder LeRoss Parker, a leader in HR and a former active board member committed to continuing education, the scholarship awards up to $500 to an HR professional either pursuing certification and/or participating in an HR degree program.

SHRA is the SHRM affiliated chapter for Sarasota and Manatee counties with more than 300 members. The chapter was founded in 1963.
