43 students receive accounting scholarships from National Society of Public Accountants Scholarship Foundation.
Foundation Chair Donald L. Cordano stated, "NSPA is pleased to extend financial assistance to this outstanding group of future accountants who represent the traditional and nontraditional student attending two-year and four-year schools. This encouragement helps assure a future base of accountants qualified to advise on areas such as financial planning and industry changes in addition to basic professional service."
Over 1,700 students submitted applications to the Foundation for the 1998-1999 academic year. Applicants are judged on scholastic achievement, demonstrated leadership ability and financial need.
Lorenzo Baca of Los Angeles, California, was selected as the most outstanding student in the competition, earning special designation as the Charles H. Earp Memorial Scholar. In addition to his scholarship award, Baca will receive an additional $200 and a plaque in recognition of his selection.
The Board of Trustees also selected Kevin Rich of Douglas, Arizona, as the 1998 recipient of the Stanley H. Stearman Scholarship award. This award was established in 1987 in recognition of twenty-five years of dedicated service by retired NSPA Executive Vice President Stanley H. Stearman. A candidate for the Stearman scholarship must be a college student majoring in accounting and be the spouse, son, daughter, grandchild, niece, nephew, son- or daughter-in-law of an NSPA active, retired or deceased member. Rich is the grandchild of NSPA member L. R. Acosta of Douglas, Arizona. Based on his outstanding academic achievements and demonstrated leadership ability, he will receive a $2,000 scholarship annually for a maximum of three years while pursuing accounting studies. Rich is a student at the University of Notre Dame in Notre Dame, Indiana.
The Board of Trustees also selected Guan-Yih Lee of Vienna, Virginia, as the 1998 recipient of the Louis and Fannie Sager Memorial Scholarship award. This award was established in 1991 to honor retired NSPA Legal Counsel, William H. Sager, the youngest son of Louis and Fannie Sager, on his tenth anniversary of service to NSPA. Candidates for this award must have graduated from a Virginia public high school and be enrolled as an undergraduate at a Virginia college, university or community college majoring in accounting. Lee will be completing his senior year at the University of Virginia during the 1998-1999 academic year.
The Scholarship Fund is the result of many generous contributions from individual members of NSPA and its affiliated state organizations. A number of the scholarships are awarded in honor or memory of these benefactors.
