In a long process that began in January of this year and included the personal interviews in March, the school’s prestigious Ledger & Quill Accounting Scholarships for 2014-15 have been awarded.

It was the school’s and L&Q’s 33rd consecutive scholarship award presentation. The 2014-15 awards total $38,000, and range from $1,000 to $7,000. All recipients have enrolled in the Strobel Honors Program. Ten new, four-year renewable scholarships have been presented to the following students:

  • Roberto Garcia, Oak Park, East Leyden High School
  • Jonah Atchison, Belleville, Governor French Academy
  • Laura Ann Kaimakis, Island Lake, Wauconda High School
  • Matthew Szleszynski, South Barrington, St. Viator High School
  • Michael Gsell, Lombard, Carl Sandburg High School
  • Grace Burba, Beach Park, Warren Township High School
  • Holly McNally, Chicago, Marist High School
  • Michael Kicinski, Arlington Heights, St. Viator High School
  • Gregory Kilroy, Livonia, Mich., Detroit Catholic Central High School
  • Dong Lee, Buffalo Grove, Adlai E. Stevenson High School

As usual, there are many, many people to thank for this initiative: the many faculty and L&Q officers who served as interviewers or genial hosts to our interviewees; the many current students (scholarship holders all) who helped with the interview program; DePaul’s Office of Admission; and of course to the L&Q members whose generosity made the awards possible.
