By Chance Nelson – Recent graduates Katherine Watts and Jared Hobby are Jewell’s very first students to be accepted into the Masters in Accounting program at the University of Kansas as part of a new partnership between William Jewell and KU.
Along with being an accounting major, Jared holds a business major and is the treasurer of Kappa Alpha Order. He is also a former member of the football team and served as an intern this spring at Bev’s Tax Services while he finished up classes before graduation. During the summer, he plans to do auditing for a local accounting firm before entering graduate school. Jared was also accepted into the Masters in Accounting program at UMKC.
In speaking with Jared about the achievement, he says he is truly blessed to have had such a strong support system which has helped him along throughout his college career, and he would like to thank Professor Chris McCullick for being a great mentor, teacher and advisor.
Katherine holds an accounting major but has a minor in theatre. Additionally, Katherine holds the position of Vice President and Treasurer for Alpha Psi Omega Theatre Honors Society.
Both of these individuals are not only outstanding students, but also outstanding people and they deserve all the good fortune they receive. The Jewell Community wishes them the best of luck in the future and encourages the rest of its students to pursue the career of their dreams.
