Augusta CPA and Mentor Wins Abram J. Serotta Award

Serotta award winner

Augusta-based CPA Tabitha Hollimon won the 2021 Abram J. Serotta Award, presented at Accounting Night on Wed., Sept. 1, in the Jaguar Student Activities Center Ballroom.

Hollimon owns Virtual Tax & Consulting, which serves clients with bookkeeping, tax preparation, and consulting. Prior to becoming self-employed, she worked at Palmetto GBA and for the Richmond County Board of Education.

Hollimon graduated from the Hull College of Business in 2008 with a BBA in Accounting. She then earned her MBA in Accounting in 2014 from Brenau University.

The award is given annually to a professional to recognize outstanding service to students and education while serving as an advocate for the accounting profession.

“It is truly an honor because I really didn’t think that my impact was that big,” Hollimon said.

Last academic year, Hollimon was a professional mentor to the winning team in the Hull Case Competition.

“She served as a guest speaker to my cost accounting and accounting information systems classes to talk about her personal journey and she really connected with a lot of my students,” said Susan Murray, Ph.D., accounting professor.

Hollimon said she is not done helping the College and is considering a jump into teaching accounting classes.

The award is named for Serotta, former managing principal of SME CPAs in Augusta, who has also taught for the College as an adjunct professor.
