This year, money that SCACPA raises through “CPAs Give” T-shirt sales will benefit the H. McRoy Skipper, CPA named scholarship fund.
Skipper was President of the SCACPA Board of Directors in 1995 and has been lauded by the Association with the Distinguished Public Service Award (1995), Service to the Profession Award (2005) and was named among “100 Influential People in Accounting” during SCACPA’s 2015 centennial year.
Near the end of August, H. McRoy Skipper Jr. and his wife, Jo, both died in a tragic multi-vehicle traffic accident on a North Carolina interstate. Skipper, 74, was a partner at WebsterRogers and energetically served the CPA community for more than 40 years.
“I can’t think of a better way to honor McRoy Skipper than by establishing this scholarship,” said Robert M. Tilton, CPA, a fellow partner of Skipper’s at WebsterRogers LLP. “McRoy’s dedication to the profession was obvious in all that he did, and he recognized the importance of passing the value of the profession and the CPA credential on to the next generation – myself included. From the day I joined WebsterRogers, McRoy was there with words of wisdom and a supportive smile that only he could provide.”
There’s one more important announcement we want to share about the October Month of Service: SCACPA is announcing the launch of our Community Connected Engagement Awards.
In November, we’ll review your description of your philanthropic endeavors and announce three winners: for Large-Firm Engagement, for Small-Firm Engagement and a Difference-Maker of Distinction.
Catawba – T-shirt sales coming soon!
Central – Homeworks
- October 19 – CPAs make a positive difference in their communities in many ways. Come join your fellow SCACPA Central Chapter members at Homeworks for a day of hands-on service and help make a visible difference in the Capital City by repairing homes for low-income homeowners.
Coastal – Beach Sweep & Happy Hour
- October 25 – We want our home to be beautiful, safe and clean, and we hope you will join us in making this vision a reality at the Beach Sweep. Keeping our beaches clean is not just for vanity; a clean beach helps protect wildlife (and bare feet), too. You know how the old saying goes, “A beach sweep a day keeps the doctor away” – or at least that’s what we say!
Want to get involved with Month of Service?
We encourage each and every SCACPA member to volunteer in their communities this fall. You can participate in October’s Month of Service by donating to your favorite charity, volunteering with your Chapter’s Month of Service project or with your firm. But whatever you decide, we want to hear about it.
We know how great South Carolina CPA’s are and we want to shout it out to the rest world.
Month of Service 2017
Every Fall we encourage each and every SCACPA member to volunteer in their communities.
