Praise From a Kentuckian


In the March 1999 issue, I was excited to read about Olivia Kirtley, the first person from Kentucky, the first member from business and industry and the first woman to be the AICPA chair ("Update: Fall Council and Annual Meeting," JofA , page 78). She has worked very hard, and all CPAs from Kentucky are proud of her.

I just want to mention that in the state of Kentucky we have always spelled "Kentuckyian" as Kentuckian. I am not sure we're in accordance with proper grammar and spelling, but that's the way we spell it in Kentucky.

Congratulations to the AICPA for choosing such an impressive chair.
