Professor wins Outstanding Accounting Professor award
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.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
