Past Award Profiles

Strength in Numbers

Members of the Sobey School of Business’s Department of Accounting pooled their resources to create 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.

Inaugural recipients were Dongsheng Li, Xuan (Annabelle) Wang, and Jingyi (Claire) Hou.
