LER Student Speaks at Schreyer Fall Medal Ceremony
Schreyer Honors Scholar Jocelin Linares graduated in December from the integrated undergraduate/graduate program, obtaining her bachelors in Labor and Employment Relations and a masters in Human Resources and Employment Relations. As a result of her strong academic and extracurricular record, she was asked by the Honors College to speak at the Fall Medal Ceremony on December 18, 2015
For the past two summers, Jocelin has been a Human Resources Summer Analyst in New York City for Morgan Stanley. She has accepted a full time position with the company upon graduation. At Penn State, Jocelin has been a Resident Assistant for first year students, a tour guide, and Vice President of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM)
She enjoys giving back to her community whenever possible and loves motivating others to achieve more in their academic careers.
In her remarks at the Fall Medal Ceremony, Jocelin shared her journey as a Paterno Fellow and Schreyer Scholar. “The expectations and achievements of a Paterno Fellow and Schreyer Scholar never go unnoticed,” said Jocelin. “At the end of the day when college is over, I may not remember the hardest exam I had to take or the countless hours I spent writing my thesis (okay we’re all going to definitely remember that), but it’ll be the people and the opportunities I was exposed to that will stay with me for a lifetime.”
