Professor Receives Accounting Education Award


Dale Flesher, associate dean at the Patterson School of Accountancy at the University of Mississippi, received the 2011 Distinguished Achievement in Accounting Education Award.

Flesher became a CPA in 1969 and worked as a staff accountant in public practice and in industry during the 1960s. He began teaching at Appalachian State University in North Carolina before becoming a faculty member at Ole Miss in 1977.

 

He was a member of the AICPA’s Governing Council from 2005 to 2008; the AICPA Foundation Board from 2002 to 2005; and numerous AICPA committees. He is currently a member of the AICPA 125th Anniversary Advisory Committee.
