Bethel Student Receives Accounting Scholarship

Bethel College Senior, Kimberly C. Owens of Michigan City, Ind., recently received a $500 scholarship from The Indiana CPA Society (INCPAS) to continue her education toward an accounting career.

Over the past six years INCPAS has partnered with the Independent Colleges of Indiana to present $18,500 in scholarships to 26 students attending independent campuses in Indiana. Applicants were evaluated based on Indiana residency, grades, involvement in campus activities and a short statement of post-graduation aspirations. This year six winners were selected and each awarded $500.

Professor Peggy Jarusewic said of Bethel winner, Kim Owens, "I have had Kim in a variety of accounting classes these past years. She is an excellent student and completes all of her work in a very professional manner." Owens aspires to seek a position in public accounting and pursue a CPA certification.
