International certified public accounting and business advisory firm Clayton & McKervey, located in metro Detroit, announced that a scholarship has been established at the University of Michigan-Dearborn in honor of former firm president, Kevin McKervey, who passed away on March 13, 2016. The scholarship was announced by Clayton & McKervey President Rob Dutkiewicz, CPA, MST, who has led the firm since McKervey’s passing.

“The Kevin H. McKervey Memorial Scholarship will create a permanent remembrance of Kevin while providing ongoing support for accounting students at the University of Michigan-Dearborn College of Business,” Dutkiewicz said. “The scholarship addresses two of his long held passions:  investing in the next generation and supporting the U of M Dearborn College of Business.”

McKervey joined Clayton & McKervey in 1990, serving as president for four years after the retirement of Don Clayton. Prior to being named president, McKervey led the firm’s international practice and was instrumental in the firm’s growth and development.

In addition, McKervey served on the U of M Dearborn College of Business Dean’s Board of Advisors for 15 years. He received the University’s Award for Professional Growth and Scholarship in 2009 and was named the College of Business Alumnus of the Year in 2012.

To be eligible for the Kevin H. McKervey Memorial Scholarship, candidates must be working accounting students who have demonstrated leadership skills, possess a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or above, and are pursuing their first career. Additional details on the scholarship are available on the U of M Dearborn website. The inaugural scholarship will be awarded at the UMD Honors Banquet in the fall.
