Published date: April 28, 2020
Virginia State University (VSU) mourns the loss of donor and loyal son of the University, Marvin C. Allmond, CPA, CFE. Mr. Allmond was a member of the class of 1972 and the managing partner at Allmond Company, LLC, an accounting firm in Landover, Maryland.
Mr. Allmond was a generous donor to the University and demonstrated his support through his investment into the Reginald F. Lewis College of Business (RFLCB) and VSU. In April 2019, Singleton Hall Auditorium was named after Mr. Allmond for his financial contributions to the Reginald F. Lewis College of Business and his dedication to hire and train VSU students. Mr. Allmond not only invested his financial resources, but he also served on the RFLCB Alumni Advisory Board, helping to enhance and strengthen the college. Mr. Allmond was also instrumental in assisting with restoring the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accreditation for the RFLCB.
Through his firm, he provided several career opportunities to VSU graduates in entry-level positions. In a 2018 interview with VSU, Mr. Allmond shared, “This shows that we have some confidence in the accounting program at VSU and have identified a good number of graduates that can fit into the culture we build at Allmond & Company.”
While at VSU, Mr. Allmond had the opportunity to be one of the first VSU students to sit for the certified public accountant (CPA) exam while enrolled in college. He earned his bachelor’s degree in accounting from VSU, a master’s in management from Central Michigan University and studied Business Management at Old Dominion University.
Virginia State University extends their thoughts and sympathy to his wife Mrs. Linda Allmond, his sons, Tyrone and Jason, and the entire Allmond family. The University honors the life, work and commitment of Mr. Allmond.
