Huntsman student HR teams place in regional competition

Two Jon M. Huntsman School of Business teams took top honors at the regional HR Games in March 2009 in Denver, Colo.

The teams placed first and third respectively, with the first-place team defeating 14 teams from 11 universities across a 10-state region. USU’s students have an impressive record in the regional competition where teams have been competing and winning for the past eight years.

This year’s first-place team included students Emily Halterman, A.J. Kim and Tate Matta. The third-place finishers included the team of Stephen Allred, Lydia Bushman and Brian Francom.

HR Games, sponsored by the Society for Human Resource Management, is a competitive “Jeopardy”-style game where student teams’ HR knowledge is tested in various areas. Each of the first-place team members were invited to the 61st SHRM Annual Conference and Exposition in New Orleans, LA., June 27-July 1, where they were recognized and awarded scholarships.
