Future and Current Accountants Race for the Cure
The Central Florida Chapter of the Institute of Internal Auditors (CFIIA) sponsored the second annual Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) team to participate in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, which was recently held on campus. BAP Vice President Jade Thompson and CFIIA Academic Relations Committee Chair Pamela Roush, Ph.D., an associate professor in the Kenneth G. Dixon School of Accounting, organized a runners/walkers team of 22 accounting students and four internal audit professionals to join thousands of other participants supporting breast cancer research. The event is held annually to raise awareness of the impact of breast cancer on thousands of central Floridians and to promote the Komen Foundation’s research efforts to improve survival and cure rates of this disease. The event allowed interaction between accounting students and accounting professionals while promoting a sense of charitable giving and community involvement. Beta Alpha Psi is an honorary organization for Financial Information students and professionals.
