NATCHITOCHES – Northwestern State University student Ashley O’Corr Davis of Pleasant Hill was selected as the recipient of the 2012 Louisiana Association of Business Educators Postsecondary Scholarship, a one-semester award of $500.

Davis is a senior pursuing a degree in accounting through Northwestern State’s School of Business. Scholarship recipients must maintain a 2.5 grade point average and hold at least a 3.5 GPA in all business courses, take 30 hours of business courses, be a full-time student and a member of Phi Beta Lambda. Davis, who plans to graduate in May, enjoys working with the public and is interested in a career in banking.

“I have always been drawn to business but I did not want to specifically focus on just business,” she said. “I thought that accounting would help me learn more aspects of business. I also enjoy numbers. There are many possibilities out there for accountants.”
