Dipon Debnath, winner, 2015 Frank H. Sobey Award
The Sobey School of Business is pleased to congratulate high-achieving student Dipon Debnath on being selected as a winner of this year's $15,000 Frank H. Sobey Awards for Excellence in Business Studies.
Strength in Numbers
Members of the Sobey School of Business’s Department of Accounting have a reputation for investing their talents and time to create a strong community of learning. By pooling their resources, they’ve taken that investment to new heights with an award that recognizes community-minded Accounting majors.
The idea for the Accounting Achievement Award drew full support from the very beginning, attracting personal financial commitments from all full-time faculty members of the Department of Accounting, all sessional faculty members, and the Departmental Secretary.
“We care a great deal about our students,” says Accounting professor Larry Corrigan. “There was no hesitation when it came time to support them.”
The department raised more than $75,000 to fund the start-up for three scholarships. With this early success, and additional contributions expected from alumni and friends, the goal of $100,000 for a permanent endowment fund is well within reach.
For inaugural recipients Dongsheng Li, Xuan (Annabelle) Wang, and Jingyi (Claire) Hou, it all adds up to a bright future, and a truth once acknowledged by another citizen of the world, Benjamin Franklin: an investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.
