WAUKESHA — An accounting teacher at Wausau West High School has been awarded a 2019 Accounting Career Awareness Grant from the Wisconsin Institute of Certified Public Accountants Educational Foundation Inc.
With the grant, Dawn Jameson’s students will be able to participate in hands-on accounting case simulations at the Milwaukee Bucks business office, WICPA said in a news release. The students will also tour Peoples State Bank to learn about accounting careers in the banking industry.
Wisconsin high school accounting and business teachers who attended the WICPA High School Educators Accounting Symposium in November 2019 were eligible to apply for an accounting career awareness grant from the WICPA Educational Foundation. Jameson was one of 32 teachers to receive a grant, WICPA said. Many of the grant projects involve multiple teachers, administrators, college or technical school faculty and CPAs.
