Clayton & McKervey awards annual accounting scholarships to two Oakland University students
Rob Dutkiewicz, president of Clayton & McKervey, a certified public accounting and business advisory firm helping closely held businesses compete in the global marketplace, is pleased to announce the recipients of two scholarships awarded through Oakland University’s School of Business Administration. The awards for the Clayton & McKervey Scholarship and the Dutkiewicz Family Scholarship were presented April 13 at the OU Accounting and Finance Department’s Spring Banquet.
The Clayton & McKervey Scholarship was awarded to Carolyn Schweiger, a senior at OU majoring in accounting and minoring in management information systems. A resident of Richmond, Mich., Carolyn is currently an intern at Lear Corporation. The Dutkiewicz Family Scholarship was presented to Kevin Doody, a Lake Orion, Mich., resident who graduates this spring with a Master of Accounting.
“Clayton & McKervey has a passion to help others succeed,” Dutkiewicz said. “It is our privilege to partner with Oakland University’s business school to recognize students who have made an extra effort to achieve success in many facets of their lives, and we look forward to seeing them thrive in their future roles in the accounting and finance profession.”
