University of Phoenix Awards Full Scholarships for Three Individuals

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA - (Marketwired - Jun 10, 2014) - In partnership with Liberty Tax Service, University of Phoenix has granted full college scholarships to three individuals seeking to further their education. Selected from a highly-qualified group of individuals, all applicants had to submit three essays along with a letter of recommendation. The judging was based on a five-point grading scale for each essay and letter. The winners were the applicants with the highest overall scores.

Winners Katrina Longan, Abhinav Mehta, and Andrea Zank were officially awarded the scholarships during Liberty Tax Service's 17th Annual Convention held in Virginia Beach, Virginia on May 30, 2014.

Longan, an office manager in Colorado Springs, Colorado, will be pursuing a Bachelor of Art's degree with a concentration in marketing. "I am still in shock! I'm left in awe thinking about how many goals I will achieve just by obtaining this degree along with the financial burden that has been lifted. There are not enough words to describe what this means to me and my family," exclaimed Longan.

Mehta, a seasonal tax preparer in the Defiance, Ohio office, will be pursuing a Master's degree in Accounting. "I honestly believe education is a gateway to a better life. And thanks to this wonderful scholarship, I can afford to continue my education and be one step closer to achieving my career goals," commented Mehta.

Zank, an owner of a Liberty Tax office in Chesapeake, Virginia, will be pursuing a Master's degree with a concentration in Business Administration. "I am so excited to be a recipient of this scholarship. I feel amazingly lucky to be a part of the Liberty team," said Zank.

"Thanks to our strong partnership with the University of Phoenix, we are able to offer these deserving individuals the opportunity to advance their education and achieve their personal goals," states John Hewitt, Founder and CEO of Liberty Tax Service.
