Jill Aoki and Anthony Lemon, who graduated with master’s degrees in accounting from USU in 2012, will receive the prestigious Elijah Watt Sells Award for their high scores on the Uniform CPA Examination.
Only 39 people out of more than 92,000 candidates who took the Uniform CPA Examination in 2012 scored above 95.5, and two of those high scorers were graduates of the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University.
The results are in for the end of our "March Madness" game with Public Radio programming at Utah Public Radio. The race began in March with 32 of UPR's programs. One of our locally produced shows, Science Questions by Sheri Quinn, made it all the way to the final four, but was beat out by NPR's Wait Wait! Don't Tell Me to make the end.
But now the votes are finally in, and in a very close race, All Things Considered has won the game! With an 8 percent lead, the show took over Wait Wait! Don't Tell Me.
