Becky Thompson, a Human Resources consultant, recently completed the rigorous North Carolina Certified Public Manager Program.
Thompson was among 44 public sector employees from 33 state agencies, universities and local government honored during a ceremony at the North Carolina Museum of History on October 1.
Thompson has more than 32 years of experience working for the state, including two years as a Classification and Compensation Manager at UNCP.
Managed by the Office of State Human Resources (OSHR), the program was established in 1982 to enhance the effectiveness of public sector organizations across our state by developing the leadership capabilities of mid-level managers.
The 300-hour program is an in-depth, comprehensive, and nationally certified development program.
The graduates were commended by State Auditor Beth Wood and Terry Bell, president of the North Carolina Society of Certified Public Managers.
