2018 Scholar Celebration


On Wednesday June 6th, Capital Region Sponsor-A-Scholar will host its annual Scholar Celebration at the Hilton Garden Inn in Troy, NY.

We will be honoring the New York State Society of CPAs and the New York Business Development Corporation for their long-term support of our program through the annual golf tournament fundraiser they have co-hosted on our behalf.

The New York State Society of CPAs also sponsored a summer program at the University at Albany which helped hundreds of local students to explore career pathways in business and accounting. Over the years, dozens of our Scholars took part in this program and were inspired to pursue careers in these fields.

Our Keynote Speaker will be Albany City School District Superintendent Kaweeda Adams.

Our Alumni Speaker will be Jay Yaskanich, alumnus of Troy High School and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

Tamani Wooley of Spectrum News will be our emcee for the evening.

Honorary committee tickets are $150 each. Corporate underwriting packages start at $750.
