On Wednesday June 6th, Capital Region Sponsor-A-Scholar will host its annual Scholar Celebration at the Hilton Garden Inn in Troy, NY. The event begins at 6pm.
In addition to honoring the Class of 2018, we will salute 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 co-hosted the golf tournament and 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.
