UBC|Okanagan hosted a reception on January 23, 2018 to honour donors of student awards which was held in the University Centre Ballroom at the UBC|Okanagan campus in Kelowna.
The reception provided a wonderful opportunity for donors to meet UBC|Okanagan students who have benefited from donor-funded awards and for donors to connect with campus leadership.
The CPA Education Foundation offers two awards of $2,500 matched with Crowe Mackay LLP and the CPABC Okanagan Chapter also offers two awards of $1,250. The chapter awards are funded by the generosity of local members who raise funds throughout the year to support these awards. This year’s chapter award recipient is Taylor Sheardon who said, “the scholarship will make paying my tuition a little easier and it will allow me to focus more on my studies. Thank you again for helping to support my education.”
Glen Jackson CPA CGA, former chair of the chapter, represented the profession at the reception. Jackson said, “the CPA profession is delighted to continue its support of UBC|Okanagan students and we wish these students success in their education and future career.”
