IndySHRM would like to congratulate Alisha Spaulding, the 2017-2018 IndySHRM scholarship recipient! Alisha’s academic record, commitment to the HR profession, and exceptional experiences are all factors in her receiving this award. Thank you to the many applicants who made it very challenging to choose a recipient this year!
Alisha is an African American female majoring in Business Administration and Human Resource management with a certificate in Organizational Leadership. She grew up in a rough part of town, attended Arlington Community High School and when she graduated, she had no plans of attending college. In spite of this, Alisha managed to work her way up the corporate ranks to become the Human Resources Manager for Thomas Caterers of Distinction. Upon accepting this position, Alisha knew that it was time for her to return to school. She felt that she had advanced in her career as far as she could without further education. Alisha is currently working full-time, about 60 hours per week, and attending the IUPUI Kelley School of Business evening classes and online to complete her undergraduate degree. Alisha plans to pursue a master’s degree upon completion of her undergraduate degree.
Please join us in congratulating Alisha for her hard work and best wishes for continued success!
