Three Oklahoma State University School of Accounting alumni were recognized in the recent 2020 Path Finders & Trailblazers issue of CPAFocus, published by the Oklahoma Society of CPAs.
Tim Roberts, Sarah Johnson and Monika Turek were among 15 people selected from across the state to earn this special honor, and each of them will be celebrated at the OSCPA’s 102nd Annual Members Meeting on June 5.
Roberts, a 1981 OSU accounting graduate, is partner at Morse & Co., PLLC in Tulsa. He is one of only five Path Finder honorees this year. Johnson, a two-time OSU graduate (bachelor’s degree in 2011 and master’s in 2012), is an instructor and assistant head of the OSU School of Accounting. Turek, also a two-time OSU graduate (bachelor’s and master’s degrees in 2005), is a tax senior at HoganTaylor LLP in Tulsa. Johnson and Turek were among the 10 CPAs selected as Trailblazers.
“I am so proud of these three individuals, all at different stages in their careers, but all making an important impact in the accounting industry,” said Dr. Audrey Gramling, head of the School of Accounting. “Each of them provides a wonderful example of how we are building the future of accounting at OSU.”
The Trailblazer program was established in 2010 to recognize the innovation, professional dedication and community commitment of the OSCPA’s New CPAs, defined as members who are under the age of 40 and have five or fewer years of CPA experience.
This is the second year for the OSCPA Path Finders, an elite group of Oklahoma CPAs who are successful, well respected and devoted to their communities who are also deeply involved in mentoring new CPAs, welcoming them to the profession and showing them ways to be successful.
