rmhc_logoRonald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of Idaho recently won an award for a service standards training that was created by a team of Boise State Organizational Performance and Workplace Learning (OPWL) students.

RMHC Global’s team selected it as the winning entry over three other finalists in the Management Effectiveness category at the 2013 international conference in Chicago. As part of the award, RMHC Idaho received a $10,000 unrestricted grant.

The OPWL student team of Allison Sesnon, Amanda Collins, Stephanie Clark and Julie Kwan created the training as their project for the OPWL instructional design course. A description of this project also appears in the PerformanceXpress newsletter.

Mindy Plumlee, executive director of RMHC, noted that, “this prestigious award showcases a great partnership with Boise State University and brings funding that will help our local chapter.”
