Lewis Madsen
Accounting Manager, Houston Rockets
Graduated Stephen F. Austin State University, Class of 2012

Nothing but NET!!!

From Lewis:

“I still feel honored to be acknowledged as an Accounting student that was selectively identified as someone who WAS going to go the distance!”

“I was thrilled that I was awarded the FEI Scholarship especially as a Stephen F. Austin State University student. There’s no denying the Stephen F. Austin State University is a smaller and lesser known school. I was recognized for my hard work and diligence alongside kids from larger more visible Universities… EQUALLY!

and audit.”
