Thank You, Dorothy Knapp

I first met Dorothy Knapp back in 2008 or 2009 at a meeting of the Mississippi SHRM State Council. Dorothy was assigned as Mississippi’s Regional Field Service Director by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and, as part of her job, she attended our meeting. I can only speculate what type of impact she might have had on other chapters, councils, etc. within her domain. (After all, the Bahamas are also part of her assigned area!) However, from my own observations, I feel confident in saying that her impact was felt and will continued to be made on those areas going forward. Read more
