Student: Casey Carroll
My experiences in Breech prepared me for the tax internship at Clayton, York, & Hopp, CPAs that I had this past year. Not only was I able to perform on a higher level due to the advanced education I've received, but was also comfortable in the work environment and with client correspondence. My professors at Breech, particularly Dr. Clayton, hold me to a very high standard and push me daily. Dr. Clayton is also a main reason why I am in the position I am today...with a summer internship at BKD, LLC in Kansas City, MO working on their due diligence team.

As a Captain, management and leadership skills are essential in maintaining safety. Many of the classes at Breech involve group exercises and projects that helped me to develop confidence in assuming a leadership role, while still being open to the input and ideas of others. In addition, the open door policy and social involvement of many of the professors provided an excellent template to follow in developing my own leadership style.
Faculty: James Simmerman
Two suggestions I would make are to get involved and to trust the process. I remember when I was a student I just wanted to be finished with school and only wanted to learn what I thought was vital in order to obtain a job. It was not until years later that I realized that everything (and every class) has its purpose. When faculty and staff encourage students to get involved in extracurricular activities, take classes that you feel are a waste of time or learn information that you think is useless, trust the process. Have faith that it all has a purpose down the line and although you cannot see how everything “fits” right now, someday you will.
