Two Berea College students were recognized recently by the Kentucky Society of CPAs. Treasure Rogers and Matthew Schwartz were awarded scholarships from the Educational Foundation of the KYCPA, which presents scholarships sponsored by many CPA firms and businesses in Kentucky to accounting students across Kentucky. Matthew Schwartz won a KYCPA scholarship and Treasure Rogers won the Brown Forman Diversity Scholarship and Internship. This is the second year that a Berea College student has won the Brown Forman Diversity Scholarship.

Rogers and Schwartz, along with five other Berea students also competed in the “Promoting and Encouraging Accounting in Kentucky” (PEAK) event, which is a “Jeopardy” style competition that uses different sections of the CPA exam as the categories on the jeopardy board.
