Teacher Recognized for Contribution to Accounting Education


Martha Collins Scarberry, an accounting teacher at Madison Southern High School in Berea, Ky., received the AICPA’s 2008 Special Recognition Award.

The award, given to an individual who has performed or contributed significantly to the success of a particular project or initiative that benefits the profession, was presented at Interchange 2008, a professional staff development conference coordinated by the AICPA and the CPA/Society Executives Association.

Collins Scarberry, a member of the Kentucky Accounting Foundation’s Curriculum Task Force, wrote Accounting and Finance Foundations I and helped develop the curriculum guide Accounting and Finance Foundations II. Those texts evolved into new accounting courses that replaced Kentucky’s original 1930s-era curriculum. As a result, the Kentucky State Board of Accountancy and the Kentucky Society of CPAs secured $125,000 of surplus state board funds to earmark for teacher training in 200 of the state’s schools.
