Accounting for success
Eulonda Whitmore, Director of Audits at the Office of Internal Audits, gave her first gift toward scholarships for accounting students in the Mike Ilitch School of Business this year.
She says her support for student success is to make sure students have the opportunities to work toward their professional goals.
“I know money can be an issue for some students, and can create a barrier to higher education,” Whitmore said.
Her story captures the spirit of the FY2017 faculty/staff giving campaign, Inspire from Within, which recognizes gifts made to Wayne State from faculty and staff from October 1, 2016 to September 30, 2017.
Whitmore added that her scholarship gift is in return for her own education, which allows her to practice the profession she loves.
“It makes me feel good knowing I’m supporting the place I work and helping our students at Wayne State.” Eulonda Whitmore, Director of Audits at the Office of Internal Audits.
