In recognition of outstanding academic achievement, Adam Marcoulier ’15 has been named the Stonehill College Accounting Program’s 2015 Student of the Year.
Marcoulier, an accounting major from Leominster, Massachusetts, has demonstrated a commitment to scholarship that exemplifies the habits of mind that Stonehill seeks to help students cultivate.
“Adam is one of the Business Administration Department’s best students,” says Glen Ilacqua, associate professor of accounting. “He demonstrates his leadership qualities through his actions both in the classroom and in the community, and he has maintained an excellent academic record.”
Marcoulier, who interned at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Boston as a junior, will seek his master’s in accountancy degree at Northeastern University after graduation while simultaneously preparing for the Certified Public Accountant exam.
He has already accepted an offer to return to PwC’s Capital Markets and Accounting Advisory Services team full time in January 2016.
“Accounting is one of the more demanding majors here at Stonehill,” adds Ilacqua. “Adam learned early on the path he needed to take to get to his desired goal, and he worked hard to create his own unique success story.”
