University of New Mexico Anderson School of Management Accounting Professor Joni Young has been awarded the 2008 Outstanding Accounting Educator Award from the New Mexico Society of Certified Public Accountants (NMSCPA). Young, chair of the accounting department, was selected by the NMSCPA for her outstanding accomplishments in the classroom that enhance the reputation of the CPA profession.
Young has been a faculty member at Anderson since 1992 and is admired by both faculty and students for her intermediate accounting classes.
NMSCPA President John Carey says recognizing CPAs who have distinguished themselves in their field is one of the most rewarding events sponsored by the society.
Young says she is pleased to accept the award. "I've been lucky to have had the opportunity to work with great students and colleagues at UNM."
Young will be honored at the NMSCPA Pride in the Profession luncheon on Wednesday, November 12 at the Albuquerque Embassy Suites and will also be featured in the society's September newsletter.
