Wathen, DeShong & Juncker LLP is pleased to announce the recent addition of Lindsey Fontenot to our Professional Staff. Lindsey graduated, summa cum laude with a 4.0 GPA  from Lamar University in May 2018, earning a BBA in Accounting. She is a member of two honor societies, Beta Alpha Psi and Beta Gamma Sigma. Lindsey will be working part-time at the firm and completing her Master’s Degree over the next year.

Lindsey has several accomplishments and honors to be proud of:

The Financial Executives International Scholarship which honors twelve accounting or finance students attending accredited colleges and universities in Southeast Texas annually with a scholarship award and an Academic Honors Program. Lamar honors one student each year with the FEI award.

The Ben J. Rogers Outstanding Student of 2018 is a prestigious award given to college of business graduating seniors with the highest overall GPA. This award honors the late Ben J. Rogers, a Beaumont business leader and philanthropist. He was inducted into the Texas Business Hall of Fame in 1991.

The Plummer Award honors the top male and female graduates with the highest GPAs of the graduating class. Plummer Awards honor the late Otho Plummer, who was chairman emeritus of the Lamar board of regents and a longtime board member. This year Lindsey is one of four students to receive this honor.

The College of Business Excellence Award recognizes students scoring in the 90th percentile or higher on the ETS Business Test which measures a student’s subject knowledge and ability to apply facts, concepts, theories and analytical methods.

Lindsey has lived in Southeast Texas all of her life. She enjoys spending time with her family and her Welsh Corgi named Winston, spending time in the outdoors, reading, and playing the piano and violin.
