Roger Clinkscales

Staff Accountant


Roger is the staff accountant at The Fund for American Studies and is a recent graduate of the Clemson University School of Business and Behavioral Science, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in accounting. After growing up in a politically active family, Roger was excited to come to D.C. first as an intern on the Hill with Representative Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, then later as an intern at The Heritage Foundation. He took an opportunity to return to the area with a position at the Tysons, Virginia office of the accounting firm, Dixon Hughes Goodman. He is now happy to be using his accounting knowledge to further the mission of an organization like TFAS, which is training student leaders, and to work toward qualifying for his CPA license soon.

Roger enjoys golf and working out, as well as following politics, culture and sports – particularly Clemson football. In his time at Clemson, Roger was active in student-life organizations and is now the young alumni representative for Clemson in the D.C. area, organizing events and gatherings – especially during football season. Originally from Greenville, South Carolina, he likes to cook and loves to eat good, old-fashioned Southern fare. He someday hopes to tour around Scotland, where his family originally emigrated from, to see all the sites and try the Scottish beer he has heard touted as top notch.
