Kathy Eddy Fund

For Marshall University students in the College of Business who are motivated to expand their horizons by visiting with established professionals in the field of accounting, in order to be introduced to varied career options. This fund will provide financial assistance to fund expenses incurred to make these visits.

Kathy is the daughter of the late Glen E. and Mildred Eddy from Harrisville, West Virginia and the first in her family to receive a college degree. Kathy graduated from Marshall University in 1972 and began her professional career as a CPA. From humble beginnings, through a combination of dedication to her profession and contributions to her community, Kathy’s horizons were continually expanded through interaction with peers and fellow volunteers and ultimately lead to her selection to serve as Chairman of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (the world’s largest association of accounting professionals) from 2000-2001, being the second woman and only the second person from the State of West Virginia to serve in that capacity in the organizations’ 125 history, and is the recipient of the AICPA’s Gold Medal for Distinguished Service (the AICPA’s highest award). Kathy is also a recipient of the Marshall University Distinguished Alumni Award and a member of the Lewis College of Business Hall of Fame.
