Celebrating KIRK’s Executive Assistant’s Achievement

By: W. Kirk Taylor, CFP®

I am honored to announce that Kirk Capital Advisors’ Executive Assistant, Gaby S. Dominguez, has qualified to be a lifetime member of The National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS). The NSCS is a premier collegiate honor society that inducts high-achieving first-year and second-year college students with a minimum of a 3.0 grade point average (GPA). Additionally, NSCS is an honors organization that invites less than ten percent of all eligible students nationwide to join.

Gaby had the opportunity to join this program through Northern Virginia Community College. However, she will extend her membership into her studies at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), where she plans to study Psychology with a Pre-Medicine track.

The National Society of Collegiate Scholars was founded by Stephen Loflin, a veteran student affairs professional, in 1994. The organization offers a portfolio of exclusive benefits, including access to over $750,000 in scholarships, chapter funds and awards, along with various leadership and service experiences.

Kirk Capital Advisors is excited for Gaby to join the NSCS community of “like-minded, high-achieving nationwide scholars,” just as Scott Mobley, the NSCS Executive Director, stated.
