Rachel Boggs, a senior accounting major at Lee University, has been chosen as a recipient of the Tennessee Society of Certified Public Accountants (TSCPA) Scholarship Award. Boggs is the first student from Lee to receive this award.
"It is an honor to break the ice for Lee, and I know that it will open up more doors for involvement with the organization," said Boggs.
The goal of the scholarship committee is to encourage students to enter the accounting profession. The TSCPA scholarship is only available to students who are majoring in accounting, have completed introductory accounting courses, and have gone through the application process.
Boggs moved to Cleveland, Tennessee in 2005, and later graduated from Bradley High School. While at Lee, she has been actively involved in Phi Beta Lambda as well as an on-campus internship in the Office of Business and Finance.
"It is an honor that a Lee student received this award," said Gregory Della Franco, assistant professor of accounting. "We are proud Rachel was selected from students throughout Tennessee that applied for this scholarship."
Boggs will be honored for the award at the TSCPA meeting on Nov. 8, 2012 at the Chattanooga Trade Center.
