DeSales Senior Stacy Lewandowski Named 2008-09 William G. McGowan Scholar
Stacy Marie Lewandowski, DeSales University senior majoring in accounting and finance, has been named the 2008-2009 William G. McGowan Scholar. The McGowan Charitable Fund awards one tuition scholarship - either undergraduate or graduate - to each school selected annually to participate. More than 60 colleges and universities were invited to take part in the McGowan Scholars program.
McGowan Scholars are chosen on the basis of academic performance, grade point average, a submitted essay, and other selection criteria. Lewandowski is the fourth DeSales student to receive the scholarship.
"Winning the prestigious McGowan Scholarship has been my most rewarding experience," said Lewandowski, of Toms River, N.J. "As a McGowan Scholar, I look forward to upholding the ideals, determination and spirit of William McGowan."

In addition, she is a student member of the New Jersey Society of CPA's.
The daughter of Thomas and Carol Lewandowski of Toms River, N.J., Lewandowski plans to take her CPA exam, upon graduation from DeSales. As of September 2009, she will be employed with the accounting firm of Cowan, Gunteski & Co. in Toms River.
