SST News – November 2016

UTA Chili Cookoff

We always look forward to the annual University of Texas at Arlington Chili Cook Off that brings together SST staff, future accounting graduates and faculty. Sponsored by Beta Alpha Psi, an honorary accounting and finance society, the event is a fun opportunity to introduce students to our firm. Each participating firm picks a theme and dresses up to fit the part.

This year, Team SST’s theme was ‘The Nightmare before Deadlines,’ complete with ‘Goblin Goop’ chili. We won a third place prize for costume!

Thank you, Team SST:  Nariah Redeau, Donald Simon, Brian Hurguy, Tyler Fleming, Karen Eilert, Luqman Danawala, Eileen Keller and Chris Adams.
