USU’s School of Accountancy Department Head Awarded National Faculty Merit Award
LOGAN — Larry Walther, department head for the School of Accountancy at the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University, has been awarded the Federation of Schools of Accountancy (FSA)/Joseph A. Silvoso Faculty Merit Award for 2013.
The intent of the award is to recognize and reward an outstanding faculty member, teaching in a post-baccalaureate program offered by a member school of the Federation of Schools of Accountancy. FSA promotes and supports accredited graduate programs in accounting to achieve and maintain public trust in the accounting profession.
“I have the greatest respect for all of the past award recipients and am truly honored to receive this award,” Walther said. “I am humbled and moved that my colleagues across the country have bestowed this recognition.”
Walther was presented with a plaque commemorating his service to the Federation of Schools of Accountancy and a stipend for $2,500. This award is funded annually by a contribution from the KPMG Foundation.
“Larry is one of our treasures, and I simply could not be more proud of all he has done for the Huntsman School and for our students,” said Douglas D. Anderson, dean of the Huntsman School of Business.
The honor was announced at the recent Accounting Program Leadership Group/Federation of Schools of Accountancy joint conference in San Antonio.
