McGladrey Intern Honored by MACPA

On January 9, 2009, Tracy F., a tax intern in our Gaithersburg, MD office, was invited by the Maryland Association of CPAs (MACPA) to speak at their Annual Educators Conference. At the conference, Tracy, along with two other college students, spoke on the topic “Why did you major in accounting?” in front of college professors from all over Maryland.

Tracy was selected to speak at the conference because of an award she received from the MACPA in April of 2008. Tracy received the MACPA 2008 Outstanding Achievement in Accounting Award, which recognizes students in Maryland colleges and universities for their academic excellence and leadership in the study of accounting. Tracy was nominated by several of her accounting professors who are members of the MACPA.

Tracy, who has been with the firm since January 2008, has been an outstanding intern since day one. “Tracy has been an incredible asset to this organization,” said Daniel O’Brien, HR Manager. “She always presents herself with a ‘can do’ positive attitude, which is contagious. She has proven to be a staunch ambassador of the McGladrey brand and has played a key role in our success recruiting top talent at her school, Mount St. Mary’s University.”

“We are very fortunate to have Tracy as a second-year intern,” said Mike M., managing director in the Gaithersburg office. “We knew quickly that Tracy was special during her first internship with us, she demonstrated the ability to quickly grasp client matters and complete tax projects.” Tracy, a senior at Mount St. Mary’s, an Honors Student, and the school’s Accounting Club President, will graduate in May and will start with us full-time in September.
