Financial Executives Institute Honors Fisher Sophomore
Elle McEneany ’24, a finance and accounting double major in the St. John Fisher College School of Business, is the recipient of the 2022 Financial Executives Institute (FEI) Scholarship.
Founded in 1931, FEI holds a mission to advance the success of the profession. Students who receive the FEI award are recognized by faculty for academic excellence, participation, and character development through extracurricular activities and leadership potential.
Dr. Mohamed Mekhaimer, assistant professor of finance, nominated McEneany for the scholarship.
“I have not felt more confident and enthusiastic about a recommendation as I do for Elle,” said Mekhaimer. “Last fall, Elle took my Introduction to Corporate Finance course. She threw herself into her assigned projects wholeheartedly and showed every sign of having real talent in doing the work needed. She is also trying to help her peers in her capacity as a tutor and informally. I believe Elle is destined to be a leader in this field.”
A member of the Honors Program, McEneany is very involved in the Fisher community and serves as an active leader in many ways. She works as a peer mentor within the Honors Program, and is a member of Investment Club, Teddi Dance for Love, and Student Government Association. In addition to her involvement on campus, she is very engaged in her program in the School of Business, having participated in the Deloitte FanTAXtic Case Competition as well as the PriceWaterhouseCoopers Business Case Competition, both held in fall 2021.
“It was a true honor to represent St. John Fisher College at the Financial Executives International Scholars’ Night this year,” said McEneany. “Being nominated for this prestigious award and attending the ceremony was a great opportunity for me to meet some of Rochester’s most successful finance professionals, who I aspire to be like someday.”
McEneany added that her experiences within the School of Business have prepared her for success in the business world. “The School of Business has provided me with one of a kind experiences which have helped me apply what I have learned so far to real situations going on in the business world,” she said. “The faculty members at the School of Business have consistently gone out of their way to help me enhance my education, and I will be forever thankful to them.”
