Scholarship Honors Joseph and Evelyn Robinson
The Joseph and Evelyn Robinson Scholarship has been established in honor of these two vibrant and respected members of the Greensboro community for more than half a century. After falling in love with North Carolina on a visit to his brother, Joseph and Evelyn moved to Greensboro in 1949 and Joe joined his brother in the firm he started, Bernard Robinson & Company, now a leading NC accounting firm of 70 years. The establishment of this scholarship in their honor will provide financial assistance to a student seeking to enter the accounting profession.
For nearly fifty years, Joe established a reputation for excellence in services performed and advice given. He believed that a certified public accountant should offer more than filing tax returns, audits, and providing financial statements. The bond between him and his clients was unique. Joe learned the details of each business that he represented so he could better assist his clients. As a result, Joe and many of his clients enjoyed great success. The Joseph and Evelyn Robinson scholarship will help UNCG students follow in his footsteps.
David and Nancy Schwenke Establish Scholarship Fund
David Schwenke, BS ’76, and his wife, Nancy, both CPAs, have created a new endowment to support top students preparing for careers in accounting. Scholarships are targeted to either undergraduate or graduate students, based on academic achievement. Three MSA candidates were selected as Schwenke Scholars for 2018-19: Lauren Davis, Amy Luppino, and Lucas Younts. “We are very grateful for this generous gift. We are already seeing its impact in building our program,” notes Amanda Cromartie, director of the MSA program.
Schwenke began his career in accounting shortly after graduating from UNC Greensboro, working for large firms before establishing Schwenke & Associates, P.C. in 1998 with Nancy, a graduate of the University of Alabama in Huntsville. They provide tax and accounting services to clients in Boulder, Colorado. “The accounting profession has been a rewarding career for us and we wanted to establish the David and Nancy Schwenke scholarship fund to provide UNCG accounting students an opportunity to further their education in our chosen field.”
