Congratulations to Shelby K. Collins. She is the recipient of the $10,000 Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) Scholarship for the 2018-2019 academic year.
Shelby is a senior at the Romain College of Business majoring in accounting, and is president of the Accounting & Professional Services Club. She is only the second person from USI to receive this prestigious award in the history of the program.
