Penn College Accounting Student Among Scholarship Winners


A Pennsylvania College of Technology junior has been awarded one of three $1,000 scholarships from an online community for accounting professionals.

Steven W. Garner, of Lock Haven, pursuing a four-year degree in accounting from the college’s School of Business and Computer Technologies, received his award from AccountingWEB.

Entrants were required to write a 500-word essay on the topic of “There’s an App for That.” Their submissions were judged in a variety of areas, including creativity, innovation, quality of writing, structure, logic and sources/research.

Garner’s entry addressed the benefit to the profession of hand-held technology that allows accountants the versatility to escape the desk-bound workplace.

“Primarily, usage of hand-held applications enables accountants to more efficiently organize and complete projects, with portability of access outside the traditional office, and to communicate with clientele on research findings and work completed,” he wrote. “The capability to prepare information on a more timely and accurate basis with hand-held applications is a definite advantage to accountants.”

Penn College’s accounting majors and certified financial planning minor are accredited by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education and the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs.
