2011-2012

  • The Accounting internship academic program was successfully completed in concert with Dr. Tara Sudderth. Ten students participated, working for five companies. Seniors working from early January through mid-March earned between $17 – $25 per hour and gained valuable experience. We are in the process of finalizing full-time job offers now.
  • Marketing internships have been established. Two prestigious programs have been filled with SCOB students.
  • Student touchpoints: There are currently 254 Stephens College of Business students, excluding the MBA program. Approximately 130 are in the junior/senior status. The Center has touched over 50% of this group.
  • VITA – Volunteers in Tax Assistance – was established in November, 2011. This was a collaborative effort with the IRS, the Montevallo community and Stephens College of Business. Four student volunteers working over thirty hours each served 30 clients. Our students now have IRS Certification for their resumés, valuable tax skills, and they have served others. This was a very good experience. Haley Cooedy was team captain.
  • Phi Chi Theta, the Business fraternity. The Center has become actively involved. This important group of students has grown from four to more than 25, and they are active. Under the leadership of President Joyce Crossley, this group taught a six-week “$ Masters” course to the Montevallo Boys and Girls Club.
  • Executives from the Metro Birmingham area are visiting SCOB classrooms.
  • The Center Series, a professional executive lecture series was established. Two guest speakers, Robert Beeman and Ellen Williams, participated this spring. More than 125 students were involved in each lecture series.
