Accounting Aid Society Acknowledges WSU Business Student for Volunteerism
Abdullah Saleh, a May 2009 School of Business graduate with an accounting major, received the 2009 Outstanding Student Volunteer Award from the Accounting Aid Society. A new volunteer this year, Saleh demonstrated his strong commitment to giving back to the community by volunteering nearly every Saturday of the tax season at the Detroit Public Library, Main Branch. When the library was closed, he volunteered at Detroit Urban League. Saleh was recognized as a fantastic volunteer who went the extra mile to serve those in need.
The Accounting Aid Society presented the award on May 14 at its 37th Annual Meeting and Volunteer Tribute event. School of Business Accounting Department Chair, Randy Paschke, accepted the award on Saleh’s behalf, as he was unable to attend the event due to attending his first classes in the School’s Master of Science in Taxation program.
Accounting Aid Society provides tax assistance and promotes the economic self-sufficiency of low and moderate income families, seniors and others in need through volunteerism and partnerships.
