Horne Commits Major Gift
Horne, LLP, recently announced plans for a significant new investment in accounting education at Mississippi State. The CPA and business advisory firm has pledged $75,000 over the next three years for the Adkerson School of Accountancy.
“Horne LLP is proud to partner with the College of Business and the Adkerson School of Accountancy,” says Horne Partner John Scott, a 1982 alumnus. “We have many successful team members from MSU and look forward to many more joining us in the future.”
The contribution will support ASAC’s mission in three areas: undergraduate scholarships, graduate scholarships and the newly created Horne Strategic Initiative Fund. The fund will serve as a flexible resource to support high impact programs and various needs.
Horne has long been involved with the Adkerson School of Accountancy. Over the years the firm has established several graduate and undergraduate scholarships. It has partnered with the school in other ways, ranging from sponsoring the school’s Horne LLP Interactive Recognition Board to hosting recruiting events for high school students interested in MSU. Scott is a member of the ASAC Advisory Council, and the firm often provides speakers for events.
The firm has also developed a presence in Starkville with the acquisition of Horne Cyber Solutions, a subsidiary providing cybersecurity and other information technology services for clients. The Jackson, MS-based firm has 17 locations, primarily in the Southeast.
