Junlin Huang, winter 2016 accountancy graduate, has been selected as a Boise State University Top Ten Scholar.
Top Ten Scholars are nominated by their academic deans and subject to rigorous review by a selection committee. To qualify for consideration, a student must have a 3.8 or higher grade point average. Nominees are then reviewed based on academic breadth of coursework, research, creative works and publications, presentations at professional meetings or conferences, and extracurricular community and campus service.
Huang has immersed herself in the College of Business and Economics, serving as an undergraduate learning assistant for the Department of Accountancy, the CFO of Beta Alpha Psi, a mentor of junior accounting students and a tax intern at a local CPA firm.
“Throughout her years of study in our program, Junlin has been an outstanding accounting student,” said accountancy Chair Troy Hyatt. “Every one of her accounting professors has told me what a pleasure it is to have her in class and about the excellent work she does. I am thrilled Junlin is receiving this well-deserved honor.”
Huang is a member of Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society, Boise Young Professionals and the American Institute of CPAs. These experiences have provided opportunities for her to give back to Boise State and the Boise community through teaching, networking, mentoring and volunteer services.
In addition to her co-curricular activities, Huang has excelled academically. She was a recipient of the College of Business and Economics Scholarship and Clisby Edlefsen Business School Scholarship and has been on the Dean’s High Honor List each semester. Huang has been recognized as a Signature Student and Outstanding Graduate in the College of Business and Economics.
“I’m very pleased that Junlin has been chosen for this honor.” said Mark Cowan, Huang’s honored faculty. “She tenaciously pursues knowledge unlike any student I’ve known. She studies hard, asks tough, thoughtful questions, and is not satisfied until she finds the answers.”
Huang is currently pursuing a master of science in accountancy-taxation from Boise State. Starting this fall, she will be a graduate assistant for the College of Business and Economics.
In five of the last six years an accountacy graduate has selected as a Top Ten Scholar for the university.
