Serving the Community... The Accounting Scholar Way
In following the tradition set by the inaugural class, our current Accounting Scholars continue to lead the community service efforts and volunteer their time to help those who are less fortunate.
In early November, the 39 members of the Accounting Scholars Program spent the day volunteering at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) walk. Scholars assisted in the event by making more than 4,000 hot dogs for participants to enjoy after they crossed the finish line. Although cold and rainy, the weather didn't put a damper on the Scholars' spirits; they cheerfully unpacked hot dogs and buns and turned the task into a competition to see who could wrap the fastest and make the most.
Also in November, the Scholars facilitated a personal items and toiletry drive for UMOM New Day Centers, a local homeless shelter that meets the needs of more than 3,000 individuals annually. The students collected donations for two weeks, with a goal of providing more than 700 basic necessities to as many families as possible.
