Hello, my name is Meredith McMasters. I am a senior Accounting and Finance double degree student from Pulaski, Tennessee. When I graduate in May of 2018, I will have completed my 150 hours needed to sit for the CPA Exam. After graduation I will begin working as a tax staff member at the public accounting firm, Crowe Horwath in Franklin, Tennessee. I have had so many opportunities available to me at UTM, and I cannot imagine my college years at a different university. Some of my favorite experiences include traveling to Ireland, England, Belgium, and France on a travel study, and then traveling to Greece and Italy over spring break with the Ned Ray McWherter Institute. I also have also had the opportunity to be a member of many different organizations on campus including my sorority, Alpha Omicron Pi, the Accounting Majors Society, Phi Eta Sigma, Beta Gamma Sigma, and the Honors Program. Through these organizations I have had chance to serve as Secretary, Events Chairman, and Alumnae Relations in my sorority, the Tennessee Society of CPA’s Student Ambassador, and the Becker Campus Ambassador. For the past three years, I have also worked in the Dean of the College of Business’s office as a student worker. This job gave me to opportunity to get to know many of the professors and secretaries in the College of Business.
As my time as UTM comes to a close next semester, I know that I made the right choice by coming to Martin four years ago. I have received an excellent education and made many connections that I will carry with me into my career. I am honored to be chosen as the Accounting Student of the Month, and I am very thankful for my time at UTM.
