May 05, 2011

Isaiah McCoy will receive his degree in accountancy, with a minor in economics and a certificate in international business, from the W. P. Carey School of Business this month. He recently reached another milestone, as well: The Business Honors student is this year’s recipient of the Turken Family Outstanding Graduating Senior Award.

In 2000, the Sam and Ida Turken Charitable Foundation established an endowment to fund this award, which honors graduating seniors who display strong academic achievement and exemplary qualities of leadership and service.

Outside the classroom, McCoy has been involved in student organizations, community service and internships. A McCord Scholar and a featured speaker at the W. P. Carey Hall of Fame Student Showcase last October, McCoy has served as president of Beta Alpha Psi and executive vice president and vice president of communication of the Business Mentoring Network. Additionally, he was recognized as the Intern of the Year through Inroads.

In addition to his W. P. Carey activities, McCoy interned at Deloitte Tax LP and at Mesa Air Group and wrote as an opinion columnist for ASU Student Media. Upon graduation, he will begin his career with Deloitte while he pursues a master of taxation degree as part of the Accounting Scholars Program in the W.P. Carey School.
