Summer Intern in Accounting & Marketing


Internship with Accounting & Marketing

Bob with Trevor

Bob with Trevor

So our first ever college summer intern arrived at the office of Smith & Smith, CPA today!  His name is Trevor Fillingame and he happens to be Bob’s nephew, so we are still keeping it “in the family”.   Trevor graduated from Cary  High School a few years ago and  is now a rising Junior at Appalachian State University in beautiful Boone, NC.  He is studying Accounting and Marketing and loves everything about the Boone area and ASU campus.  We’ve been by to visit him several times during the past few years and he really seems to be embracing those college years!

Welcome Trevor to Smith & Smith, CPA

Trevor will be working with us this summer and will learn the ins-and-outs of small business accounting in the ‘real world’ and will do some marketing/shadowing with me at different events in May, June and July.  We are excited to have him here and it’s going to be a fun summer!  Stop by the office to say HELLO to Trevor anytime you are in the area.  His office is set-up beside of Alicia and he’ll be training with Bob, Blake and Cam on different parts of the business.  Maybe this will work out well for Trevor and he’ll consider joining Smith & Smith, CPA after graduation in a few years?!?!?  (Blake is not in the picture because he is playing in the NCACPA Golf Tournament today as a guest of PrimePay Payroll)

Hope you had a nice weekend.  Friday night we went to see the Off Broadway Play, Driving Miss Daisy.  It was a wonderful play and I’ve been a fan of the movie since I first saw it in 1989 when Morgan Freeman played the role of  “Hoke”.   We only have one play left in our NC Theater Season Ticket series…”The Little Mermaid” will be at the end of July.   On Saturday morning I was excited to participate in the Note in the Pocket Inaugural Socks & Undie 5k Rundie Race.  The event was held over on the Doretha Dix Campus in Raleigh and it was a beautiful day for a morning run!  I met my friend, Jenn Smith, there and also saw several other friends from Note In The Pocket (Susan Pruskin and Dallas). Jenn finished first in her age bracket (way to go Jenn!!!) and they were taking collections of new socks and undies for kids in Wake County.  Such a wonderful organization and I was happy to be there to help support and spread the word of their mission, all by putting in 3.1miles on the pavement!  On Sunday we went to Greenville, NC to visit with my parents and to celebrate Mother’s Day.

I took a freshly made chicken pot pie that I got from Lois Cozart at My Girlfriend’s Closet…they have partnered with Ladyfingers Catering and now offer delicious home-cooked food in a ready-to-take-and-bake freezer in their  Apex store location. I picked up the pie and it made for a VERY yummy Mother’s Day lunch!  We also got to spend some time walking around the ECU campus and thinking about our ‘old college‘ days….ahhhh.…ECU has a beautiful campus and we really enjoyed looking at the new dorms (omg…they have air condition now!!!) plus the other new areas and even walked in downtown Greenville and took a moment to read the memorial at Greenville Town Commons at the devastating flood in 1999 from Hurricane Floyd.  Crazy how fast time has passed….

Hope you have a great week!  The month of May is zipping right on by and summertime is here!
