by Janet Asher Vreeland, CEBS

The PIHRA Foundation annually grants scholarships to support HR professionals with funds raised through the Silent Auction, Raffle and PIHRA District Support. HRCI Scholarship Recipient Carol Box (shown below) was honored with the PIHRA Woodland Hills (District 9) /Anita Gorino HRCI Certification Scholarship at the April 3, 2014 Woodland Hills District meeting.

Barbara Allen, SPHR, PIHRA Foundation Board Member was present at the meeting to  share the history of this scholarship being named after Anita Gorino as well as the PIHRA Foundation’s mission.  As Barbara explains, “This scholarship was named after Anita Gorino because $875 was raised/donated by District (9) Woodland Hills for the Anita Gorino Foundation Roast in 2010 in recognition of Anita’s commitment to and support of the Foundation’s Scholarships for HRCI Certification recipients.”

A special thanks to PIHRA Woodland Hills for being a long-time A #1 supporter of the Foundation.   In addition to the Anita Gorino HRCI Scholarship, Woodland Hills holds Monthly Opportunity Drawing to raise funds for the Foundation.  PIHRA Woodland Hills raised $117 at their April 3rd meeting.

Hurry!!  The deadline is April 30, 2014 for the current Scholarship season.  This scholarship is awarded for testing dates May 1st – June 30th, 2014.  The PIHRA Foundation HRCI Certification Award provides reimbursement grants of up to $500 to selected HR professionals who meet the eligibility requirements for an approved course of instruction leading to their successful certification as a PHR, SPHR, GPHR, PHR-CA or SPHR-CA.
