College of Business Alumna Funds Accounting Scholarship

Emily Mauzy, a 2006 graduate, hopes to make a difference in the life of a student

Emily Mauzy, a 2006 graduate of the Master of Science program in Tax Accounting, is one of the most recent alumni to pledge scholarship money for current College of Business students.  Emily, who is employed with PwC (formerly PricewaterhouseCoopers), believes strongly in supporting her alma mater.

“While writing thank you letters to the donors of the scholarships I received, I often wondered if they knew exactly how much it meant to me,” Mauzy said. “Not only did these scholarships help ease the financial burden of my higher education, they filled me with a sense of accomplishment and motivated me to do my best. In my opinion, the best way to thank these donors is to give back to the next generation of students in hopes that someday they will do the same.”

At 27 years old, Mauzy is proof that it is never too early to start giving back.  For more information on giving back to the College of Business, visit
