Congratulations to Aubrey Ramsdell (BS ‘16, MSA ‘17), who received the Elijah Watts Sells Award from the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA). The award is given to CPA candidates who obtained a cumulative average score above 95.50 across all four sections of the Uniform CPA Examination, passed all four sections on their first attempt, and completed testing in 2017.

“For me, this award is a validation that I am capable of turning one of the most daunting tasks I’ve faced into an unbelievable success,” Ramsdell said. “This award is also a reminder of the incredible support system I have been blessed with – I could not have achieved this without the education and guidance I received from the Wake Forest School of Business faculty and staff, my fiance Patrick O’Rourke ( BS ‘13, MSA 14), and my family and friends. The journey of preparing for this exam began many years ago. I think it takes a village to earn the Elijah Watt Sells Award – and I am very grateful for my village!
