John Yurkow, Jr. & John Quon Accountancy Program

The College of Business and Aviation

The secret is out…..exciting things are happening in the Delta State University accountancy program and I want you to be a part of the journey! Many months were spent gaining support for two of our memorable professors, John Yurkow, Jr. and John P. Quon, and the pinnacle moment has arrived: following approval from Delta State University Administration we are officially naming the accountancy program in their memory.

Now is the time for each of us who have been impacted by the guidance, teaching, and leadership of Mr. Yurkow and Mr. Quon to make a tribute. We are where we are today because of their genuine care and guidance during our educational process. Thousands of other lives were touched by them since their start at Delta State in 1958. Now, nearly 64 years later, they still live on in our lives and at Delta State. Because of the great love many have for them, six funds were established over the years to support our professors, scholarships, and department needs.

Will you join me and consider contributing a notable gift to honor Mr. Yurkow and Mr. Quon? Our gifts will provide lasting support to the department of accountancy and the many students yet to come. Through this naming and our gifts of support, Mr. Yurkow and Mr. Quon will be permanently recognized as the pioneers of this department at Delta State; and, we will be giving back in a way that celebrates what they have meant in our lives.

Watch for details on the official unveiling of the naming at 2:00 p.m., Friday, November 4, 2022 as part of the 2022 Homecoming Weekend.
