Karen Pincus Earns Distinguished Achievement in Accounting Education Award

“The future of our profession is built on the quality and the number of the young people who join us,” Leslie Murphy, American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Chair explained while presenting the Distinguished Achievement in Accounting Education Award to Karen V. Pincus, Chair of the Department of Accounting at the University of Arkansas. “That, in turn, depends on whether quality people decide to study accounting and how well they are trained in their collegiate and post-collegiate education. The Institute annually selects a member of the academic community who best serves these truths to receive the award.”
