Miller receives Adult Learner of the Year award
Kristopher Miller, CPA, senior in the tax department of Lattimore Black Morgan & Cain, PC in Brentwood, Tenn. was recently named the 2008 Adult Learner of the Year by the American Council on Education (ACE).
This award is presented annually by ACE and is given to an adult learner who has earned a college degree or advanced his or her career as a result of utilizing ACE's College Credit Recommendation Service (CREDIT). Recipients must also demonstrate outstanding achievements in their community and/or workplace while balancing family, career, and education.
"Four years ago, I came to the realization that in order to better support my family, I needed to go back to school," says Miller. "Today, I give credit to my wife and son as it is their love and support that enabled me to reach this goal. I now work for a leading CPA firm in Nashville and feel that I have positioned myself for a very bright future."
Miller graduated top of his class from Lipscomb University in 2007 with an accounting degree and was honored with an Outstanding Achievement in Accounting award during his senior year.
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.
