Lyle Hanna Volunteer Spirit Award

Click KYSHRM HALL OF FAME for the winner!!

Kentucky SHRM, an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management, seeks candidates who routinely invest significant time, effort, and professional expertise in serving the human resource professional or advancing the human resource profession on a voluntary basis. Named for Lyle Hanna, SPHR, this award is in recognition of Lyle's sustained, tireless, visionary volunteer leadership that has both served the professional and advanced the profession in the state of Kentucky.

Local chapter leaders and other practitioners may receive some recognition for their efforts from time to time, and we are seeking nominees whose voluntary contribution is of such magnitude that it should be recognized on a grander scale. Please note that the evaluation and judging process is best served with a clear, complete, and concise compilation of requested information.

SHRM Volunteer Leadership Achievements

Describe the contributions the nominee has made by contributing their HR expertise or services to serving the professional or advancing the human resource profession outside of their normal working environment. Please highlight one or two specific contributions with special emphasis on serving the professional or advancing the profession. Describe the volunteer SHRM leadership role the nominee has performed and the dedication of personal time, resources or expertise in helping to better the HR profession at some level.

  • Nominees must work or reside in Kentucky

    Selection Process

    A panel of judges chaired by the state council director at large-philanthropy will determine the award recipient. The state council chair on an annual basis will determine the other panel members. The nomination form, responses to the requested information, references, resume, as well as a potential conference call interview with the judges will serve as the basis for evaluation and judging. The award announcement will be made at the Kentucky SHRM’s Annual State Leadership Conference. The award recipient will also be recognized in the Kentucky SHRM State Council’s web site. Nominees may not serve as a judge.


    Recipients will receive a plaque and recognition at the annual KYSHRM Leadership Conference.  The recipient’s local SHRM chapter will receive a check for $250.00 for use at the recipient’s discretion in order to benefit the chapter.  Recognition will also include a notice in the KYSHRM Hall of Fame on the KYSHRM website and the new KYSHRM Magazine.
