2020 SoDak SHRM Scholarship Winner

    Lizz Nedved


    My name Lizz Nedved, and I am a Yankton, SD native. I have been working in Human Resources for over ten years, working in manufacturing and healthcare, and currently at the University of South Dakota Foundation. I have been a member of the Southeast South Dakota SHRM since 2009 and served on the chapter board in various positions since 2013. A few years ago, after participating in the SESD SHRM chapter’s certification class, I earned my SHRM‐CP certification. After thinking about getting my master’s degree for years, I used the spare time that the pandemic gave me to apply for the program. Over the summer, I was accepted into the University of South Dakota’s Master of Science in Administration program, specializing in Organizational Leadership. I started classes this fall and plan to graduate at the end of 2023.

    I am fortunate to be apart of such a great SHRM chapter and very grateful for the scholarship. I am excited to see how my education can help advance human resources management.
