National Accounting Institute Awards Top Scholarship to BGSU Graduate Student

The College of Business is proud of the many accomplishments our students receive.  The most recent success story is about incoming Master of Accountancy student Jessica Glenn.  She was awarded the prestigious 2014-15 AICPA Scholarship for Minority Accounting Students – the Stuart Kessler Award presented by the American Institute of CPAs. Only one student is selected annually for this national scholarship and it goes to a student who demonstrates exceptional academic aptitude, a high level of service and volunteerism, and a commitment to becoming a leader in the CPA profession.

Dr. Ken Snead, BGSU Master Teacher and director of the Master of Accountancy program, praises Jessica’s selection. “Jessica was selected from approximately 100 AICPA minority scholarship students in the country to receive this prestigious award.  It was awarded to her based upon her exceptional academic achievement, her willingness to take on leadership roles within the College of Business, and her commitment to obtain her CPA. She certainly deserves the honor.”

Jessica graduated in May from BGSU with a business degree, specializing in accounting. She is continuing her education at BGSU in the graduate accounting program. As an undergraduate, Jessica served as a College of Business Student Ambassador, helping the dean promote the College to its stakeholders and serving as a role model for current and future BGSU students. She held leadership positions in the honors accounting organization, Beta Alpha Psi and was also active in the professional business fraternity, Delta Sigma Pi. As an undergraduate, Jessica interned at Deloitte in its Cleveland office and will be working there full-time after earning her master’s degree.
