The Missouri Society of CPAs (MSCPA) provides up to 30 scholarships annually to college students majoring in accounting through its Lead & Enhance the Accounting Profession initiative, which seeks to help educate and assist young people interested in becoming CPAs. For the 2015-16 academic year, three SBU Accounting majors were selected for the prestigious scholarships.
“We are thrilled to have several of our SBU Accounting majors recognized by the MSCPA,” said Wayne Clark, professor and chair of the department of accounting. “The MSCPA is the premier organization representing CPAs in Missouri, and this helps confirm that our SBU Accounting students rank with the best in the state of Missouri.”
SBU students selected for the accounting scholarship include:
- Tyler Davison, a freshman accounting major from Webb City, Mo.;
- Jenna Durnell, a senior accounting and information assurance major from El Dorado Springs, Mo.; and
- Laura Sappington, a senior accounting and information assurance major from Higginsville, Mo.
