May 17, 2018 -- Moore Norman Technology Center Accounting student Denise Allen was awarded the Nancy Liner Accounting Memorial Scholarship today during a Business Professionals of America award ceremony at MNTC. This scholarship recognizes a student who demonstrates excellence in the Accounting curriculum.
The Nancy Liner Memorial Scholarship is presented in memory of Nancy Liner, a former MNTC Accounting instructor who, after being diagnosed with cancer, continued to teach and inspire her colleagues and students. Her passion for her students is reflected in the criteria for selecting the scholarship recipient. Before her death in 1987, she requested that MNTC set up the scholarship for accounting students using a portion of her insurance benefit when she passed on.
Allen will graduate from MNTC’s Accounting career program May 23 with a Full Charge Bookkeeper diploma. She is an active member of Business Professionals of America student organization and holds the position of treasurer.
Accounting Instructor Leslie Pfrehm said, “Denise is a true example that dedication and a good attitude can change lives. She is excited and motivated to learn and start a new career. She makes every effort to understand the material so she can use her new skills on the job.
“Denise is a problem-solver and has overcome challenges that would have stopped others. There is not a day of class that Denise didn’t arrive with a smile on her face ready to work on her goal and help encourage others too. I believe she will be successful in her future career because of her dedication, personality and incredible work ethic.”
To be considered for the scholarship, the nominee must be finishing their last semester of the Accounting Services course at MNTC and plan to enter the field directly from the program, or continue their education in a business-related field. They must actively participate in class and club activities, demonstrate leadership skills and show the willingness and ability to help other students.
A committee of business instructors and professionals review the candidates’ nominations and make their selection. The winner’s name is placed on a plaque in the Accounting classroom and the winner receives a check for the amount of the fund's interest and a printed award.
