The Texas Society of CPAs (TSCPA) recently announced the recipients of the organization’s Accounting Excellence Awards. Every year, TSCPA’s Accounting Education Foundation recognizes one outstanding senior accounting student from each of the 52 participating Texas universities.
Blanco student Christina McKinney received the 2008 TSCPA Accounting Excellence Award from Texas State University. McKinney was selected for this honor by the university’s accounting faculty. The award is based on academic performance.
Since 1957, the TSCPA Accounting Education Foundation has distributed almost $5 million to promote, develop and advance accounting education in Texas. In addition to the Accounting Excellence Award, the foundation gives scholarships to the top students enrolled in Texas accounting programs. Through donations from Texas CPAs and interest on endowed funds, the TSCPA Accounting Education Foundation awarded approximately $235,000 annually in scholarships to the top students enrolled in accounting programs in the state.
