George W. Wilson, Jr. Scholarship Fund
I knew George through the ITA (Information Technology Alliance). He was a person that you were alway happy to see. He was kind, smart, fun, and loyal. He is greatly missed. I was very happy to hear, via ITA, that there was a scholarship honoring George for students at the University of Maryland.
George was an integral part of Bergeson & Campbell, P.C., a Washington, D.C. law firm and its consulting affiliate, The Acta Group, Bergeson & Campbell’s consulting affiliate, team for almost 16 years. Not a single consequential decision regarding information technology or financial management was made without George’s input and advice. Our organizations’ success is based in no small part on George’s vision, creativity, brilliance, and business acumen.
George’s passion for technological innovation and his vision for the convergence of information technology and accounting were truly ahead of their time. As a CPA, Principal with CliftonLarsonAllen LLP, and Founder and CEO of OneSource Professional Services Group, George’s selfless devotion to his profession, clients, and colleagues was unmatched, as were his substantive contributions to the field. To honor George’s legacy, and ensure George’s passion for excellence and innovation continue for generations, Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. established the George W. Wilson, Jr. Scholarship Fund through the University System of Maryland Foundation, Inc. (USM Foundation).
On Saturday, May 21st at 9:30AM wear your wackiest socks, favorite tutu and funkiest running gear and come out for a 5K fun run and walk to help support the George Wilson Jr. Memorial Scholarship Fund. The fund was established in George’s memory to support needs-based University of Maryland students studying accounting/information technology.
By making a contribution to the Fund, you will honor George’s legacy and memory and ensure George’s vision for the future of information technology will be forever realized by supporting deserving students who wish to become CPAs and share George’s vision for the profession.
