FSB accountancy student named PCAOB Scholar

Anthony Patrick

For the fourth consecutive year, a Farmer School accountancy major has received a prestigious $10,000 scholarship from the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board. Senior Anthony Patrick was named a PCAOB Scholar this month.

"To say that I am ecstatic and truly grateful for this incredible award would be a severe understatement," Patrick said. "Scholarships, especially of this caliber, are intentional and equitable investments in the next generation of leaders and world changers, and I'm beyond humbled to be deemed a worthy investment amongst such students."

Those nominated for the award must demonstrate interest and aptitude in accounting and auditing as evidenced by an overall GPA of 3.3 or higher or being in the top 1/3 of their overall class and must demonstrate high ethical standards.

Kirby Copper earned the award last year. Adrian Awuah received the scholarship in 2019, while Arnav Damodhar was awarded the scholarship in 2018.

"Following graduation, I aim to earn my CPA licensure and utilize it in developing the foundations of a lasting, impactful, and equity-driven career in accounting. Though I remain open to exploring the vast world of accounting, I see myself operating within the consulting world, providing innovation, opportunities for continued growth, and building bridges where walls once stood," Patrick said.
