Christian Brothers University students, Mandy Wang, Jonathan Holliday and Catherine DelBove were recognized among the outstanding accounting students in the state and awarded scholarships by the Educational & Memorial Foundation of the Tennessee Society of Certified Public Accountants (TSCPA), Memphis chapter at a recent luncheon.
In order to qualify for a TSCPA scholarship, students must complete introductory courses in accounting and/or be majoring in accounting. Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic achievement, professor recommendation, leadership skills and financial need.
In addition, Catherine DelBove was one of four students who received special acknowledgement. DelBove received the TSCPA Paul L. Royston Scholarship, which recognizes the top accounting student in the state of Tennessee. DelBove plans to work in auditing at a public accounting firm, specifically in forensic accounting. She plans to sit for the CPA exam soon, would like to pursue a master’s degree and after retirement, become an accounting professor.
“We are so proud of our outstanding accounting students and the recognition that they received from TSCPA. They are second to none.” notes Dr. Jennifer Weske, Assistant Professor of Accounting and Finance. “I am confident that they will be successful in whatever career path that they choose.”
This year TSCPA awarded a total of $128,625 in scholarships to students attending colleges or universities throughout Tennessee. The 121 recipients were chosen from 198 applicants. The TSCPA Memphis chapter annually gives over $20,000 in scholarships.
