Albion College is back as a player in the annual accounting competition sponsored by the American Institute of CPAs. Albion was the underdog last fall as it was the smallest of the academic institutions to have a team reach the finals in Washington, D.C. This year, the team comprised of students Peter Curry, John Rogers, Victoria Slater and Don Strite and advisor John Carlson are one of 15 to advance to the semifinal round of competition.
Junior Caitlin McClorey, fresh off a summer internship at Valassis, a Detroit-area marketing company, was among a group of students in Albion’s Carl A. Gerstacker Institute for Business and Management who traveled to Paris in October for a week of intensive work on business plans with students from École Supérieure De Vente (SDV), a French business school.
Sophomore Theresa Hencsie is studying accounting and competing in cross country as she follows through on a military commitment. The Troy native enlisted in the Marine Corps Reserves during her senior year of high school. “I’m driven toward challenges,” she says. “The thought of proving myself and doing something few Americans do enticed me.”
Albion College is pleased to announce the appointment of two new members of the board of trustees: Ernst & Young senior partner Kevin Asher, '86, and physician and entrepreneur Dennis Wahr, '74.
“I have been interested in forensic science for many years,” says Wilburn, a biochemistry major, “so this has turned into a perfect opportunity to observe the goings-on in a forensics lab and better get a grasp if this is what I want to pursue as a career.”
Whether the field is academics or athletics, Carl Pressprich has used his work ethic and drive to excel. This semester, the physics major who is starting his third and final year in Albion's dual-degree program in engineering is writing computer programming language during a 16-week experience at the Oak Ridge (Tenn.) National Laboratory.
