Becky Casey, chair of the Accounting and Computer Information Systems Department, was one of two recipients of the “Women to Watch” award in the experienced leader category. The other was Karen Linn, managing director of Berberich Trahan and Co. in

Topeka.

The “Women to Watch” awards are given out by the Kansas Society of CPAs in conjunction with the

American Institute of CPAs.

The experienced leader award goes to KSCPA /AICPA members who are in a higher level or leadership position within their organizations, such as partner, owner, member, executive, elected official or appointee. Casey, who joined the Pitt State faculty in 2002 after 20 years experience in the accounting industry, said she was pleasantly surprised by the recognition.

“It was a wonderful surprise to receive the nomination, and I am thrilled to have been selected by the previous recipients for the 2013 KSCPA/AICPA Women to Watch award,” Casey said. “Thirty-five years ago, I fell in love with the field of accounting, and the passion still burns. It is truly an honor to be recognized by my peers as a leader in this field.”
