Nicholls students win human resources state championship, head to nationals in the spring

THIBODAUX, La. — Nicholls State University’s student Society for Human Resource Management chapter won the state championship at the Louisiana Human Resource’s first annual Case Competition.

During the Nov. 4 competition in Baton Rouge, the Nicholls chapter presented the top solutions for the mock case, narrowly edging out the LSU chapter. As a result, the LA SHRM organization will send the Nicholls chapter to the National Case Competition in Houston in March.
“This accomplishment validates the hard work of our students and what we’re teaching in the classroom. We know they have what it takes to compete. We practiced and the students knocked it out of the park,” said Melanie Boudreaux, faculty sponsor and instructor of management. “We’re excited to go to nationals and get the Nicholls name out there.”

With 120 active members, the Nicholls SHRM chapter is the largest in the state.

The Society for Human Resources Management helps to enhance the students’ real-world human resources experience through attending various events and workshops, including conferences, an etiquette dinner, resume workshops, and mock interviews, among others.
