It was important to establish this scholarship because the board of directors has an interest in young people developing in the business world- particularly business and accounting. The association has historically been well connected to WCU. The early board members taught at the University (Damson, Walker, Gern) as well as a current board member (Kowal). When WCU thrives, our community thrives.
