HIGH POINT, N.C., March 24, 2010 ? High Point University students Denise Barnhardt and Eulah Petty, both accounting majors in the Evening Degree Program, have been selected as recipients of the 2010 Horton Godwin Scholarship.
Sponsored by the Piedmont Chapter of NCACPA and Dixon Hughes PLLC, the Horton Godwin Scholarship program is intended to honor the memory of Horton Godwin, a CPA who was dedicated to high ethical standards and professionalism in the practice of public accountancy.
“I am confident that both women will make excellent use of this generous scholarship,” says Dr. George Noxon, chair of the Department of Accounting, Finance & Economics in the Phillips School of Business.
The scholarships are awarded to nontraditional accounting majors attending universities in the Piedmont area, and selection for the scholarships is based on student essays and nominations by the department of accounting chairperson.
