Accounting Alumna Among State Institute’s ‘2006 Shining Stars’


An alumna of Pennsylvania College of Technology’s four-year accounting major has been included among the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ “2006 Shining Stars” on the basis of a commencement award she received last spring.

Laura A. Butler, formerly of Collegeville, was honored in May with the PICPA Award, presented by the college’s School of Business and Computer Technologies for excellence in accounting studies under criteria established by the institute. She since has accepted an accounting position with Northrop Grumman Corp. in Long Island, N.Y.

Butler is listed among this year’s senior award-winners at PICPA’s “CPAZone,” a part of its Web site dedicated to Pennsylvania students and educators interested in the accounting profession.

Penn College’s accounting majors are dually accredited by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education and the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs.

PICPA is a professional association of more than 19,000 CPAs working to improve the profession and better serve the public. Founded in 1897 and headquartered in Philadelphia, it is the second-oldest and fifth-largest CPA organization in the United States. Membership includes practitioners in public accounting, industry, government and education.
