NOHRA's goal for Student Relations is to build a strong line of communication and solid working relationship with the students, advisors, and officials from our partnering colleges and universities. In addition, Student Relations will provide educational resources geared towards the professional development of students.
Students who need support and resources to aid them in their professional careers or advisors and officials interested in the development of said students should feel free to contact Kendallyn Jacobs, President-Elect, at Kendallyn.Jacobs@rlgbuilds.com.
The Education Award was established in memory of Roger Elrod, a founding member of the Toledo Employment Managers Association, now known as the Northwest Ohio Human Resource Association (NOHRA). In an effort to promote NOHRA's goals of advancing the profession and serving Human Resources professionals, this education award is designed to financially assist individuals expressing an interest in the Human Resources profession.
