Pfeiffer senior gains attention for accounting efforts

Tabatha Skipper, a senior accounting major at Pfeiffer University, is on her way to becoming a future business leader.
Skipper, who lives in Salisbury, is the only student in North Carolina this year to earn all three level honor awards from the Career and Membership Achievement Program (CMAP), offered by the Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL).
The program puts special emphasis on career development and preparation for the marketplace. The Future Business Leaders group is the largest business career student organization in the world with more than 215,000 high school members and approximately 11,000 college students nationwide. In North Carolina, there are 700 members.
Skipper, who also serves as vice president of Pfeiffer’s Student Government Association, is now eligible for the next level honor: the Executive Award, which recognizes state and national skills. Skipper was recognized during the state conference April 10-12 in Raleigh.
Skipper is eligible to earn the organization’s President Award, a national honor that focuses on association leadership, business skills and community involvement. Skipper is the only recipient of the President’s Award in North Carolina, and among only four nationwide. She will be recognized with an award and pin during the organization’s national conference in Atlanta, June 21-24.
“I am so honored to receive these awards and to be able to represent Pfeiffer in this way,” said Skipper, a business minor, who invested many hours during the year to fulfill the necessary requirements. “I am very thankful for the faculty and staff who helped me along the way.”
Dan Hazlett, a North Carolina Phi Beta Lambda member and local adviser at Stanly Community College, commended the work of Skipper as well as the Pfeiffer PBL members and advisers. “We are proud of Tabatha and her amazing achievements,” he said. “We appreciate the hard work that she and other PBL students have accomplished.”
