The South Carolina Association of CPAs Educational Fund Trustees awarded $44,500 to 31 exceptional students who plan to pursue careers in accounting. The scholarship recipients represent 10 South Carolina colleges and universities.

The scholarship recipients will be recognized at a student luncheon during the Fall Fest Accounting Conference on Friday, Nov. 15, at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.

The scholarships are awarded to students of South Carolina colleges and universities who are rising juniors or seniors majoring in accounting or who are master’s degree students at a South Carolina college or university.

We would like to extend a special thanks to the Educational Fund Trustees: Bob Berry, CPA, CRPC; Charles Alvis, CPA, PFS, CGMA; Allen Hodges, CPA, CGMA; Luann Hundley, CPA; Wendy Redmon, CPA; and Bill Robinson, CPA.
