Menlo College Senior Ty Lauderdale Awarded the FEI Scholarship


Financial Executives International – Silicon Valley Chapter (FEI) is a financial organization for CFOs and senior financial executives with more than 10,000 members in the US.

One of FEI’s noteworthy community service projects is a scholarship program that honors Bay Area accounting students. Four Menlo College students were nominated as future finance leaders: Hunter Dupee, Ty Lauderdale, Kyle Lubke, and Destiny Serna.  All four of the students will be considered FEI scholarship alumni, and they will be invited to all of the FEI professional development events and other FEI events. They’ll also have an opportunity to serve on FEI’s Junior Board of Directors.   This year, the annual FEI scholarship was awarded to Menlo College senior Ty Lauderdale.

Bob Farkas ‘63, First Vice President, FEI, Silicon Valley Chapter said “It was a very difficult decision, because each student made a powerful presentation and a good impression in an interview with several FEI members. This year, I was struck by the excellence of the Menlo candidates.”

Ty said “I would like to thank Mr. Farkas. I am very thankful for this opportunity and honored to be awarded the FEI scholarship. This will improve my motivation, and will drive me throughout my career.”

“Menlo College has offered many opportunities to me and other students in pursuit of our career endeavors. I am thankful for my amazing accounting professors and the enthusiasm they bring to both the classroom and their guidance of our plans for the future.”
