The Boston Chapter of Financial Executives International honored three Suffolk University students at an awards dinner attended by students and faculty from Boston-area colleges and universities.

FEI, a worldwide association of high-level executives, named Katrina Flynn the Outstanding Graduating Senior in honor of her academic excellence and service to the Accounting Department at the University’s Sawyer Business School.

Joining Flynn in receiving honors were juniors Stephen Gaudet and Erjola Hoxha, both of whom received scholarships. They were judged on the basis of academic achievement, community service, and a personal statement.

"We in the Accounting Department are very proud of all three students for what they’ve accomplished,” said Associate Professor Gail Sergenian. “Many members of the scholarship committee approached me to praise the qualifications of the Suffolk nominees.

“I watched our students network with the executives at the dinner and realized once more that even in a select group, our students stand out,” said Sergenian.

FEI is the premier association for CFOs and other senior finance executives. The organization provides networking, advocacy, and continuing professional education on key issues for high-level executives in financial management and reporting. The Boston Chapter of the FEI is the largest in the international association.
