The 41st Annual Accounting Awards Banquet was held on May 22nd. It is one of the longest standing traditions at SU and a strong testimony to the vitality of our accounting program. At the banquet, 22 students received scholarships, three received academic awards, and four received awards for their work in Beta Alpha Psi, the accounting academic honorary.
Those attending the banquet included over 100 accounting students, faculty, staff, advisory board members, and representatives from the professional community. The event is impressive in demonstrating the strength of our accounting students and the support our program receives from the professional community. The advisory board in particular has been extremely helpful in recent initiatives such as the valuation program and the move to establish an internal audit program.
Each year the Chair's Award goes to a student, staff member, faculty member, or professional who has provided exceptional service to the accounting program. This year's recipient was Catherine Banks, who represents Ernst and Young on the department advisory board and has chaired the board for a number of years. This award is very well deserved as Catherine has provided exceptional support to our program. Congratulations and thank you to Catherine!
Jani Medeiros, Administrative Assistant for the department, and Bruce Koch, chair of the department, did a great job of organizing and orchestrating the event. Congratulations to Bruce and Jani and to the department for maintaining this SU tradition for so many years!
