Texas A&M’s team of four students was named as one of the nine regional winners of the Deloitte FanTAXtic, a tax case study competition. More than 60 teams representing more than 40 colleges and universities participated in the regional event from Nov. 9-10, held at Deloitte offices across the U.S.
Sophomores Courtney Jackson and Luke Kaminski , Junior Jeffery Quinn, and Senior Jacob Billings made up the regional winning team.
