Lin Wang Memorial
Lin Wang (1993-2018)
Lin Wang, a Naveen Jindal School of Management graduate with a master’s in accounting, died tragically at her Dallas apartment in September 2018. In honor of her life, a memorial tribute campaign has been launched to establish an endowed fellowship in her name.
A total of $25,000 in memorial contributions will establish the Lin Wang MS’18 Endowed Fellowship for Jindal School students pursuing a graduate degree in accounting. Preference will be given to students who completed their undergraduate degree in China.
“This fellowship will provide an opportunity for Lin Wang’s name to always be remembered and for her to always be a permanent part of our University family,” said Jindal School Dean Hasan Pirkul, PhD.
The Jindal School is accepting online donations through Impact UTD – the official UT Dallas crowdfunding platform. Not only will 100 percent of each donation be applied to the fellowship endowment, but all contributions will be matched dollar for dollar during this campaign by the Jindal School.
Wang was born in Shandong, China, and excelled as a student throughout her educational career. She also was skilled in playing the guzheng, a traditional Chinese string instrument. In college, she was an accomplished scholar and English student. While at UT Dallas, she served as treasurer for the Accounting Leadership Association, was awarded several scholarships and was inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma, the business honorary society. Most recently, she had passed 13 of the 14 parts of the ACCA, the global version of the CPA, and was studying for the final, 14th section when she died.
Wang was an only child and is survived by her father, Wang Peng; mother, Zhang Chong; and her fiancé, Xiaorui Li, all of China. While in Texas, she was an active member of Dallas Chinese Fellowship Church, where her funeral was held. Her parents returned to China with Wang’s remains.
