Pennsylvania College of Technology student Kalee A. Holdren was selected from among her peers to serve as the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ student ambassador to the college.

As a student ambassador, Holdren encourages other Penn College students to become members of PICPA, promotes the institute’s programs and scholarships, and works with Penn College Accounting Society President Morgan E.

Holdren, of Trout Run, is a sophomore in the college’s bachelor-degree accounting major.

“I chose to study accounting because I like the rules and structure, along with all the numbers,” Holdren said. “I also really liked all the many things I could do and many places I could go with an accounting degree and accounting licenses.”

Penn College faculty members selected Holdren for the student ambassador position from among a number of accounting students who were nominated.

Penn College offers a bachelor’s degree and an associate degree in accounting. The Bachelor of Science can be paired with a minor in finance, financial counseling, legal studies, management, mathematics or several others.
