Lacey Dugger Accounting

The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) awarded MCOB senior Lacey Dugger a $10,000 academic scholarship for the 2018-2019 academic year. Dr. Russell Hardin, CPA, Department Chair of Accounting, nominated Dugger.

Dugger is a senior with a double major in accounting and finance. She is from Foley, AL. Dugger is a first-generation college student and salutatorian of her high school graduating class. Her proficiency at working with numbers drew her to accounting. As she progresses in her studies, she has come to enjoy the many facets of the accounting world. She chose South for its closeness to home and the Mitchell College of Business’ AACSB accreditation. The intimate class size and family-type atmosphere are a couple of reasons why she loves South. She says all her professors have been willing to lend a helping hand and share their experience and insight.

Dugger is involved in many organizations including: Phi Kappa Phi, Alpha Chi National Honor Society, Golden Key International Society, the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, the Society for Collegiate Leadership and Achievement, the IMA Accounting Honor Society, FMA National Honor Society, Financial Management Association, Beta Alpha Psi and Beta Gamma Sigma. She is most active in Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS), having served as president in academic year 2016-2017. During her time as president she attended a Global Leadership Summit in Orlando, FL and won a case competition with her team. Along with being highly involved, she has early enrollment into the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) program due to her CMA scholarship.

As a first-generation college student, Dugger feels honored and privileged to receive the PCAOB scholarship. This further solidified her dedication to hard work and being the best she can be. After graduation, she plans to pursue her CPA and graduate degree.

The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board establishes auditing and related professional practice standards for registered public accounting firms to follow in the preparation and issuance of audit reports. The PCAOB scholarship is a national scholarship program that provides a source of funding to encourage outstanding undergraduate and graduate students to pursue a career in auditing. Students nominated must meet strict eligibility criteria to be considered for this scholarship. This year, PCAOB awarded 332 scholarships. One student from each university was selected to be the recipient of the scholarship.
