Central Michigan University student Angel Stallings is the recipient of a $10,000 merit scholarship from the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board.
Stallings is a junior from Detroit, Michigan, majoring in accounting with minors in information systems and finance. She helped re-establish the CMU chapter of the National Association of Black Accountants to help fellow students develop professional skills.
The scholarships are awarded to outstanding undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in an accounting degree program at accredited colleges and universities in the United States. CMU accounting faculty members nominated Stallings for the award based on her academic excellence, involvement on campus and experience in the accounting field.
“One of my goals is to sit for the certified public accountant exam after graduation,” Stallings said.
“This scholarship just further solidified that I chose the right career path, and I’m honored that the board chose to support me on my journey.”
