Great Teachers in Accounting Scholarship
At the time the Great Teachers in Accounting Scholarship was founded, our goal was to create an endowed fund that would support students in perpetuity and recognize the terrific teachers we had at the time in George Clark, John Keros, and Gerry Kruse. We chose an endowed scholarship because we recognized that the chief characteristic of Eastern’s College of Business accounting students was that most of them worked to put themselves through school. We felt that this was unlikely to change and scholarship dollars would continue to be prized well into the future. Establishing and funding the Scholarship was our way of “paying it forward” to help students who need assistance.
With increases in tuition over the years, scholarship dollars are more important than ever! It has been many years since we’ve asked our alumni to contribute to the Great Teachers in Accounting Scholarship. But the need is even more significant now, so we’re reaching out in hopes that we can grow the scholarship to help more students. Your gift will be even more meaningful as we pay tribute to our “Great Teachers”, both past and present, who helped us academically, and guided us as we made our career choices. We hope you will join us in “paying it forward” to help both current and future students.
We have a MATCH CHALLENGE! Ray Lombardi '76 will match every dollar given up to $5,000 which will get us to 50% of our $20,000 goal. That's right, your gift can do twice as much good in growing the Great Teachers in Accounting Scholarship!
