LER Students Team Up with Faculty and Alumni for THON Success
Supporting the largest student-run philanthropy in the world, two LER-sponsored student groups, the Society for Labor and Employment Relations (SLER) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), volunteers partnered with LER alums and faculty to raise a record $6,655 for the Four Diamonds Fund. The 2015 total was more than three times the amount raised in 2014.
Julie McClarnon served as THON Chair for SLER with Megan Flaherty chairing the SHRM THON team.
“A large portion of our total was donated by the amazing faculty and alumni, and we would like to thank them,” said McClarnon. “We would also like to thank Jessica Steele for assisting us in spreading awareness to the faculty and alumni.”
