David Tharp, PHR, SHRM -CP

Human Resource Manager

I have worked at Alta Care Group since August 2015 and with the Head Start program since 2012.  I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration from Youngstown State University with a major in Human Resources.  I also hold the Professional in Human Resources (PHR) and Society for Human Resource Management Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) certifications.  I oversee all aspects of Human Resources for Alta Head Start and my major areas of interest are; coordinating the recruitment, selection, and retention of eligible candidates, personnel records maintenance, and benefits administration, among others.  I enjoy providing guidance and feedback to my fellow managers as it relates to Human Resources to help move the mission of Alta Head Start forward.
