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,"
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.
A native of Conowingo, Md., Boggs moved to Cleveland, Tenn., 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.
