The Charlotte Chapter held its annual Student Night at the Queens University Athletic Complex on March 24, and was well attended by current students and professionals from the Charlotte area. The highlight of the evening was the recognition of the scholarship award winners for 2015, when the chapter awarded $7,500 in scholarships to worthy students from Charlotte area institutions.  The Chapter extends a big thank you to all who participated and to Queens University for being gracious hosts for the evening.

“Thanks again for the scholarship! It is truly an honor and a huge blessing!” said Madison Godsell.

“I want to sincerely thank you for your help throughout the entire process! It was my great pleasure to meet you last night. I am thrilled to be one of the lucky winners for this year and the reward means a lot to me, and it is the best gift for my final year of pursuing the master’s degree in accountancy. My next step is to try my best to pass the CPA exams and achieve higher goals in my career,” said Jimmy Wang.

“Winning the NCCPA Scholarship was an honor. Being recognized by such a distinguished organization gave me the extra push I needed to get through my last few months of grad school and the CPA exam. When I was recognized, along with the other recipients, at the student night I felt like I had achieved so much already. I really enjoyed the networking opportunity to speak with professionals and other accounting students about their experiences in the field or tips on approaching the CPA exam. The speakers did a fantastic job engaging the audience with topics that were relevant to inexperienced students, as well as, professionals who had been working for years. I look forward to attending the event next year, but from the prospective of a professional,” said Cori Moore.
