The late Joe E. Ahlin, former managing partner in the Salt Lake office of the Arthur Young & Co. accounting firm, who died last October following a September hunting accident, will be memorialized by a scholarship fund established by the University School of Accounting.
Ahlin's fellow employees donated more than $7,200 to the fund, which was matched by his company. Additional contributions have brought the total to more than $15,000.The annual scholarship will be available to an accounting student selected on the basis of financial need. The recipient also will be offered an internship with Arthur Young & Co. in a department of the student's choice.
The scholarship was presented to the university by Ahlin's family and Jerry G. McLain of Arthur Young & Co. Dr. John W. Seybolt, interim dean of the College of Business, and Dr. Reed H. Randall, chairman of the accounting school, accepted the award.
Ahlin, who also was chief volunteer officer and board chairman of the United Way of the Great Salt Lake Area, was a magna cum laude U. graduate with a bachelor's degree in accounting and an MBA.
