I-G teacher awarded WICPA Accounting Career Awareness Grant
Stacey Gardiner, accounting teacher at Iowa-Grant High School in Livingston, has been awarded a 2019 Accounting Career Awareness Grant in the amount of $2,500 from the Wisconsin Institute of Certified Public Accountants (WICPA) Educational Foundation, Inc.
Gardiner used the grant money to take students for tours of the business offices at Palermo Pizza and Harley-Davidson Museum where they witnessed different accounting functions.
Wisconsin High School accounting and business teachers who attended the Nov. 9, 2018, High School Educators Accounting Symposium were eligible to apply for an accounting career awareness grant from the WICPA Educational Foundation. Gardiner was one of 37 teachers to receive a grant. Many of the grant projects involve multiple teachers, administrators, college or technical school faculty, and CPAs. The Foundation encourages teachers to be innovative with their grant activities and to share the activities with other teachers.
"The WICPA Educational Foundation's Accounting Career Awareness Grant Program is an exciting opportunity for teachers and students to explore a variety of career opportunities available to those with an accounting degree," said Michael E. Friedman, CPA, chair of the WICPA Educational Foundation. "It also reminds them that accounting can be fun."
The WICPA Educational Foundation supports programs to improve awareness of the accounting profession and ensure the advancement and vitality of the profession.
