OCHRS Professionals of the Year

Member Awards Plaque

The Oklahoma City Human Resource Society (OCHRS) is pleased to award our members annually three Professionals of the Year awards.  These awards are in honor of Kathleen Lyons-Bunna who suddenly passed away on July 9, 2010. Kathleen was a President of OCHRS and she was very proud of her profession and very eager to help and assist all who asked for her assistance.   The recipient(s) of these awards will be presented with a beautiful commemorative crystal award piece and a generous stipend to help further their efforts to encourage and inspire fellow HR practitioners and have their names engraved on the Perpetual Plaque donated by MTM Recognition to honor former OCHRS president, Kathleen Lyons-Bunna. The award presentation will take place at the annual OCHRS holiday celebration and party in December of every year. View award winners
