Angela Randall, a Hope College junior from Remus, has received a scholarship from the American Society of Women Accountants (ASWA).

The mission of ASWA, which was founded in 1938, is to enable women in all accounting and related fields to achieve their full personal, professional and economic potential, and to contribute to the future development of their profession. Members include partners in national, regional and local CPA firms, financial officers, controllers, academicians, financial analysts and data processing consultants, recent college graduates and women returning to the work force.

Students who have completed their sophomore year (or 60 semester hours or the equivalent before the summer term) are eligible for the awards. Candidates are chosen on the basis of leadership, character, communication skills, scholastic average and financial need. The $1,000 award will support Randall during the forthcoming 2006-07 school year.

Randall is a 2004 graduate of Big Rapids High School, and the daughter of Joyce and Rick Randall. She was recently named a Baker Scholar at Hope. The George F. Baker Scholarship program develops the business leadership potential of a select group of students at the college, emphasizing academic excellence, quality of character, responsibility and motivation. Her activities have also included softball and intramurals, and serving as a student assistant for the women's basketball program.
