Meng Xu will be honored as the 2011 Delta Sigma Pi scholarship key recipient for San Francsico State, given annually to the graduating student with the highest cumulative academic average toward a business degree in administration. Meng earned a GPA of 3.98 with a concentration in Accounting.
"I was so glad to hear that I’d gotten this award because I’ve tried my best to study hard.” Meng said, “It’s very nice to be recognized for that. I still remember that I was studying the textbook in the hospital delivery room until the nurse took it away when my second son was going to be born.”
Meng, originally from Xiamen, China, moved to the Bay Area with her husband who was pursuing a Ph.D. in molecular cell biology at UC Berkeley. After attending Peralta Colleges, Meng transferred to SF State with a GPA of 4.00 and had a two-hour commute each way from her home to campus on public transportation. At SF State, she has been a member of the accounting honors society Beta Alpha Psi and participated in the Volunteer Tax Assistance (VITA) program.
Meng plans to pursue graduate studies fulltime. It will be a new start point for her to achieve continuous successes. Her future goal is to become a certified public accountant. As Professor David Franz of Accounting says “she has the self-motivation, initiative, independence and work ethic needed for a successful career”.
Meng will officially receive the Delta Sigma Pi Scholarship Key at the College of Business Honors Recognition reception on Thursday, May 19.
