News from the Richard C. Adkerson School of Accountancy
Learning More than Accounting
Megan Holloway’s enthusiasm is contagious. She’s as excited about the Adkerson School of Accountancy as she is her beloved sorority, Phi Mu.
The junior accounting major from Mobile, AL, is a standout student, having been on the President’s and Dean’s Lists multiple times. It’s obvious from her grades and her demeanor that she has found her niche at ASAC.
“This department is unique,” she shares. “The professors are so willing to help, and the advisors always work with you on scheduling and other needs.”
It’s no wonder that she was drawn to take a position as a student worker within the director’s office. Her responsibilities include meeting and greeting visitors, clerical work and other tasks.
“Megan is hard-working, conscientious, creative and always willing to pitch in to get any task completed,” says Michelle Bricka, ASAC Business Manager.
Away from her job and school, Holloway is involved in her sorority. So much so, that she is currently the chapter President. After serving as Treasurer, her experience in ASAC gave her the encouragement to take the next step to the presidency.
“The professors had confidence in my abilities in the classroom, which gave me the confidence to think I could be a good president,” she says. “My classes have taught me to be focused, organized and transparent – all qualities that I’ve put into practice in my leadership role in my sorority.”
Following graduation, Holloway plans to attend graduate school and sit for the CPA Exam.
“I’m hoping to get a job in a Big Four accounting firm in a large city,” she says about her future goals. “I really enjoy auditing and would like the opportunity to practice in that area.”
With a well-rounded resume and the propensity that she has shown for leadership, there’s no doubt she should have all options open to her.
