The camp is not all work. Students
enjoy nights of fun and entertainment,
including a pool party, scavenger hunt
and campus tour.

Another diversity program that
complements CMAP, the Accounting
Career Awareness Program, is in its fifth
year and also took place in June. ACAP
is a program of the National Association
of Black Accountants’ Center for
Advancement of Minority Accountants.
ACAP’s primary objective is to
increase the number of high school
students from underrepresented ethnic
groups who attend college and major
in accounting. Through ACAP’s efforts,
students receive educational enrichment
experiences and the practical help
needed for college preparation and a
career in accounting.
“WE TRAVELED TO SCHOOLS ACROSS ALABAMA AND GEORGIA, SEEKING THE BEST AND
