Thorp Teacher Awarded Grant (To Promote Accounting Career - 2013)

Karen Eslinger, accounting teacher at Thorp High School, has been awarded a 2013 Accounting Careers Awareness Grant in the amount of $600.00 from the Wisconsin Institute of Certified Public Accountants Education Foundation, Inc.

Accounting teachers who participated in the fall 2012 WICPA High School Educators Symposium were offered the opportunity to write proposals about why they should receive funding. Eslinger was one of 26 teachers to receive a grant.

Eslinger plans on using the grant money for a field trip to visit and learn about accounting careers at CVTC Chippewa Valley Technical College and to visit and learn from CPA’s at Wipfli LLP in Eau Claire.

“The Foundation’s Accounting Career Awareness Grant Program is a great opportunity for teachers and students to connect with one or more CPAs and explore accounting careers in interactive and exciting ways,” said William L. Komisar, chair of the WICPA Educational Foundation.

The WICPA encourages lasting innovations that can be shared with other teachers. In addition, it supports career awareness and also provides accounting scholarships and grants to individuals and organizations that aim to further their education in accounting.
