New Record for Accounting
For 20 consecutive years the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) student chapter in the Huntsman School has been selected to receive the Award of Excellence as an Outstanding Student Chapter. In addition, this year the chapter also won the award for Outstanding Programs & Activities award.
“Only four chapters nationally earn the Outstanding Programs & Activities recognition each year, and out of the 20 years of earning the gold award of excellence, this is the sixth time we have received it,” Huntsman IMA advisor, Professor Frank Shuman said. “The continuing success of our IMA student chapter is a testament to our top-notch accounting program and the dedicated student officers who work tirelessly in delivering quality technical meetings and service projects.”
The chapter has also continued a several year-long streak of having a student officer receive one of the national IMA scholarships. This year, for first time ever, two students received scholarships. Jacob Fryer, the 2015-16 incoming IMA chapter president, received a $2,500 scholarship in the graduate student category, and Joseph Brewer, the 2014-15 IMA chapter treasurer, received a $1,000 scholarship in the undergraduate student category.
The chapter will receive a trophy for the Award of Excellence, $1,000 for being awarded as one of the Outstanding Student Chapters, and $500 for the Outstanding Programs & Activities.
