Five Fisher students were recently honored for their leadership, service and merit by the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA) at the organization’s Central Region Student Conference in Milwaukee.

Students Miesha Alexander, Stanley Alexander, Amari Dryden, Marieme Fall and Mouniratou Nikiema were among the 22 students selected to receive the prestigious corporate scholarships from companies including Plante Moran, Wells Fargo, Cargill, Allstate and NABA. In all, 67 students from 21 universities applied for NABA scholarships.

“The scholarships earned by these students represent their hard work and dedication toward academic excellence,” said David Harrison, senior director of Fisher’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion Student Services and Corporate and Community Outreach. “I’m very pleased with the number of scholarship awards our students received at the conference. These students are a positive reflection on Fisher and Ohio State, and it truly is an honor to see them recognized for their leadership, merit and community service.”

Eleven advisors and more than 300 NABA Central Region Student Chapter members, representing 13 chapters and 21 universities, attended workshops and a career fair at the conference.
