    Congratulations goes out to Emily Donegan (Class of 2019), Cathryn Siolka (19), and Julia Platteter (19) as they led the SNC SHRM team to the Wisconsin SHRM HR Games Competition this weekend in Eau Claire.  The HR Games are a Jeopardy-style competition where teams of two or three test their knowledge of HR and management against teams from other schools.  After five preliminary rounds on Friday night, SNC SHRM found themselves seeded 2nd for the semi-finals.  On Saturday, they defeated UW-Whitewater to advance to the Championship match against the 2018 champion, Western Technical College.  SNC SHRM found themselves down by

    400 points after the first set of questions, but with some excellent knowledge and smart board management, Emily, Cathryn, and Julia prevailed to take the crown.
