Sharp Wins Human Resources Award
The Raleigh-Wake Human Resources Management Association (RWHRMA) presented the Robert F. McLain Memorial Award to CBC Human Resources Director Jan Sharp at an RWHRMA luncheon on Tuesday, September 19 at the Women’s Center in Raleigh.
The McLain Award was established to honor Robert F. McLain, who died approximately two months into his term as President of what was then the Raleigh-Wake Personnel Association. Nominees for the award must have exhibited service to the association; dedication to the human resources profession exemplified through experience, certification, and development of other human resource professionals; and contributions to the community. One award can be presented annually, but the award is only given in a year when a professional is found who exemplifies these characteristics.
