Please join us in congratulating the members of the Appalachian team who are competing in the CFA Institute Research Challenge: Brianna GilmoreCorbin LammersDerek MahatoAshley Meacham, and Maximus Pavone. Their hard work and determination have led them to victory in the North Carolina competition finals today!  Next month, these students will carry the banner for both Appalachian State and North Carolina into the Sub-Regionals round when they compete for the Southeastern title. We are incredibly proud of these students! Their journey to this point has been fueled by countless hours of research, financial modeling, crafting an insightful analyst report, and meticulous preparation for their presentation. They are excellent representatives of Appalachian State!

The team and I would also like to thank our CFA Industry Mentor, Mr. Chris Pavese, Dr. Delbert Goff, and past Appalachian CFA Institute Research Challenge team members.
