Prof. Williams Receives 'Experienced Leader' Award from Md. Association of CPAs

Jan Williams, associate professor of accounting, received the 2015 "Experienced Leader" Award from MACPA, the Maryland Association of CPAs, at the organization's "Women to Watch" event, held Sept. 18. The award is presented annually to nominees "who have established their roles as leaders in their organizations by advancing to the highest levels of management or ownership, and by mentoring those following in their footsteps."

"I must say that I was absolutely was speechless when I heard my name," said Williams. "It was as if time stopped—yet I could hear people clapping. It was an honor to be selected as a winner from such a pool of highly respected and accomplished women throughout the state of Maryland. It’s amazing when you are recognized for your work. It reminds you that your labor is not in vain, and that’s exhilarating. It motivates you to want to work harder and to do even more to help others."

When Williams, who also is the director of the school's Accounting Honors program, meets with her students or mentees, she reminds them that you must love what you do.

"Accounting is the language of business. Every business, every organization requires accounting. If you love music, music organizations need accountants; if you love sports, sports organizations need accountants. You can match what you love with accounting. It can be matched with any passion. Along with that advice, Williams emphasizes: "You must pass the CPA exam, because it’s the best profession to pursue."
