    LCHRMA is proud to offer scholarships each year to college students with an interest in business and/or human resources. This year we awarded two scholarships!

    Mackenzie Philbrick: “I will be attending Oregon State University in the Fall of 2023, where I’ll be pursuing a major in Business Administration along with a minor in Public Health. Through this academic path, my goal is to enhance my understanding in Business while also building career path that contributes positively to the well-being of those in my community.”

    Espen White: “After high school I am attending Linn-Benton Community College where I will be studying economics. I will also be trying to walk onto the basketball team there. After my two years at Linn-Benton I plan on continuing my education at Oregon State University.”
