DON BREIMEIER MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP

Ashish Patel earned the 11th annual Don Breimeier Memorial Scholarship for his outstanding achievement in academics, demonstrated leadership and commitment to service. As the highest-rated 2015-2016 applicant, Ashish will receive an additional $1,000 award over-and-above the $1,250 he earned as a college scholarship recipient. 

The Don Breimeier Memorial Scholarship was established to honor the legacy of the MSCPA’s executive director from 1965-1993. He led the evolution of the MSCPA from its humble beginnings, and built the foundation for much of the successes the profession enjoys today in Missouri.

Thanks to all of the members and companies that donate to the MSCPA scholarship program. This program is entirely funded through members’ generosity, and 100 percent of donations goes directly to scholarships. To help with next year’s program, please click here to contribute!
