Maureen Flahive Receives Tax Scholarship

12/19/2016  -  Maureen Flahive, L’ 17, has been awarded a $1,500 scholarship from the Cincinnati-Columbus Chapter of the Tax Executives Institute, a worldwide association of in-house tax professionals. The scholarship is awarded to a student of outstanding ability who has demonstrated an interest in tax.

"I was very appreciative to receive this scholarship,” said Ms. Flahive. “Federal Personal Income Tax [“FPIT”] was my favorite class, and so to have that interest open the door for such a wonderful opportunity like this scholarship was incredibly rewarding."

Ms. Flahive was a volunteer with Volunteer Income Tax Assistance, preparing federal and state tax returns for low-income clients free of charge, during her first year of law school. She has also taken several tax courses.

“She is one of our best students,” said Prof. Richard Wood, who taught Ms. Flahive in FPIT and Business Associations and who was present for the award ceremony at which she received her scholarship in November.
