Rachelle Agatha CPA Scholarship
Do you love Excel? Are numbers your friends? Do you desire to start your career in accounting, technology, or problem-solving? In the future, can you see yourself as a CFO, COO, CTO, Accounting Faculty, or similar? If so, apply!
Accounting has always been my passion. I graduated from Cal Poly SLO with a business/accounting degree and earned my CPA working for PWC. As I moved through my career and additional educational goals, my accounting education roots have been the foundation for who I am. Accounting gave me the tools to be a successful leader in several complex organizations in non-profit, public and private sectors as well as teaching in higher ed. I believe an accounting education provides strong problem-solving skills which are a necessary part of any leadership role. SDMC will always be my family, so I dedicate this scholarship to those students with a passion for accounting first!
