Two UK Students Receive KyCPA Scholarships

Published: Jul 23, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (July 23, 2014) — Two recent University of Kentucky graduates, Aleksey Graboviy and Jake Persky, were selected by the Educational Foundation of the Kentucky Society of Certified Public Accountants (KyCPA) to receive the CPA Deloitte 2014 Scholarship.

 

According to the Educational Foundation of the Kentucky Society of CPAs, the KyCPA Scholarship is dedicated to enhancing the numbers of college degrees in Kentucky, expanding the pipeline of financial professionals in the business marketplace, improving the financial literacy of Kentucky’s youth and revealing to students the boundless career opportunities open to those who pursue an accounting degree. The foundation has provided scholarships in amounts ranging from $1,000 to $2,500 recognizing scholastic achievement and leadership qualities in students planning to become CPAs.

 

Aleksey Graboviy, from Prospect, Kentucky, graduated in May 2014 from the Gatton College of Business and Economics with a bachelor's degree in accounting and a minor in international business. This Global Scholar is fluent in Spanish, Ukrainian and Russian. Some of Graboviy’s accomplishments include receiving UK’s Outstanding Student Organization Award, a Women Business Leadership Scholarship, a Kentucky Senate Recognition Certificate, and being recognized as a Coca-Cola Scholar.

 

Graboviy stays busy currently working with Deloitte LLP, Liberty Homes LLC, Parkside Family Dental and the World Change Coalition.

 

Jake Persky, from LaGrange, Kentucky, is currently pursuing a master’s degree in accounting at UK. Persky also graduated in May 2014 from Gatton College with a bachelor's degree in accounting. During his undergraduate career he served as the vice president of marketing for the accounting fraternity, Beta Alpha Psi, and as the treasurer for fraternity, Kappa Alpha Order. Persky has tutored introductory accounting classes in Gatton College and served on the student advisory council for the interim director of the Von Allmen School of Accountancy.

 

This summer Persky is working a tax internship at EY.

 

“Receiving a KyCPA Scholarship means a lot to me as the KyCPA is one of the most well respected accounting organizations in the state of Kentucky, and I am honored to be recognized as a top accounting student,” said Persky.

 

Graboviy and Persky both plan to begin their professional careers as a member of the KyCPA, and will both regularly attend meetings in order to build networks and expand their technical accounting knowledge.
