Institute Announces Exam Award Winners


The AICPA named the winners of the Elijah Watt Sells awards for the November 1998 Uniform CPA Examination.

Cynthia Faye Veinot won the gold medal by earning the highest score on the November exam. Veinot, who works for Deloitte & Touche LLP, is certified as both a Chartered Accountant and a Certified Management Accountant. She is a graduate of the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada.

Charles A.P.N. Carslaw of Reno, Nevada, won the silver medal, and Christopher D.H. Stauffer of Galva, Kansas, won the bronze.

The AICPA presents the Elijah Watt Sells awards twice each year to CPA candidates who have the highest combined grades on the four-section, two-day exam. The award was created to honor Elijah Watt Sells (1858–1924), a founding partner of Haskins & Sells (a predecessor to Deloitte & Touche) and was first presented in 1923.
