UT Accounting Scholarship Honors Young Alumna
KNOXVILLE—The Nashville chapter of the Tax Executives Institute (TEI) recently established a Master of Accountancy (MAcc) scholarship at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, College of Business Administration, in honor of Casey Adams.
Adams, twenty-three, a two-time alumna of the college and CPA for Ernst & Young in Nashville, passed away unexpectedly in 2011. The Casey Adams MAcc Scholarship Endowment was established with funds donated by members of the TEI Nashville chapter, including those from the area’s largest firms and friends and colleagues of Casey’s mother, Donna Adams, also a CPA. The national branch of the TEI matched funds donated by the Nashville chapter.
The establishment of the endowment, which will be awarded on an annual basis, was announced at the thirty-sixth Annual Warren Slagle Accounting Day. Adams’ father, John, expressed appreciation on behalf of his family.
“Thank you all for honoring our beautiful and precious daughter, Casey Nicole Adams,” said John. “This scholarship will make it possible for someone to fulfill his or her dream, as it was hers to enroll and complete the MAcc program at UT.”
Friends and classmates of Casey Adams are encouraged to consider contributing to the scholarship by contacting UT’s College of Business Administration Office of Development at 865-974-6083.
