Accounting Students Win Third in National Competition

Published: Aug 24, 2007

Five University of Tampa students won third place honors at a national meeting of business students in Chicago. The University’s Lambda Beta chapter of the students’ national honor society, Beta Alpha Psi, won third place in the Best Practices competition, which was part of the society’s annual meeting in early August.

The team consisted of Michael Dill, Jayson Garrett, Chedu Moyo, Jessica Newton and Janna Williams. Chapter advisers Karen Squires, associate professor of accounting, and Dr. Barbara Lippincott, assistant professor of accounting, attended the meeting with them.

“This is a huge achievement for a chapter that is only four years old,” Lippincott said.

Beta Alpha Psi is open to students who have excelled in the fields of accounting, finance or information systems.
