Financial Executives Institute Honors Fisher Sophomore
Noah Campanelli ’23, a finance and accounting double major in the St. John Fisher College School of Business, is the recipient of the 2021 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. Patricia Wollan, associate professor of finance and chair of the Department of Accounting and Finance, nominated Campanelli for the scholarship.
“Noah is a budding leader with an abundance of initiative,” Wollan said. “He has managed the rigors of being a student-athlete, and a student leader, as well as being an outstanding scholar.”
Campanelli is a member of the varsity baseball team at Fisher, and is an active leader on campus. He served as president of the freshman class in 2019, participated in the Deloitte Collegiate FanTAXtic National Competition in fall 2020, and is the current vice president of alumni relations for Fisher’s chapter of Delta Sigma Pi Business Fraternity.
“I am very grateful to have received this scholarship from the Financial Executives Institute. It’s an honor to be recognized by a group whose success in the field is something I strive to replicate. The scholarship will be very helpful in funding my college education costs,” said Campanelli. “Additionally, I’d like to take this opportunity to give much of the credit for my development as a student and in accomplishing my goals to St. John Fisher College.”
He added that Fisher has made it easy to participate in several different experiences.
“Between participating in many extracurricular activities, being a member of the baseball team, and handling a double major, I have been fortunate to be involved in many engaging activities as part of my Fisher education,” he said.
