Joan and Gavin Solotar Scholarship - Shannon Lafferty

Shannon Lafferty

Recipient of The Solotar Family Scholarship

Shannon Lafferty, a 19-year-old junior accounting major, has the next several years of her life pretty well thought out. “I plan to complete my 150 credits and pass the C.P.A.,” said the Mount Sinai, N.Y., native. “Hopefully, I’ll work for one of the Big Four. Right now, I’m leaning toward [a career in] auditing; that’s the most I’ve had experience with so far. But I’m pretty open.” The Solotar Family Scholarship Lafferty received recently is moving her toward her goals, “giving me the opportunity to take a lot of the worry out of paying for college so I can focus on my studies.”
