CANTON, Mo. — The Institute of Management Accountants recently selected the student chapter at Culver-Stockton College as one of the 2020 Award of Excellence Outstanding Student Chapters, and Abigail Huber was selected to receive an IMA Memorial Education Fund Scholarship.

Culver-Stockton was one of five schools nationwide selected as an outstanding student chapter, along with Athens State (Ala.) University, the University of Hawaii at Manoa, the University of Scranton (Pa.) and Utah State University. C-SC will receive a plaque and a $1,000 award.

C-SC has received the outstanding student chapter award 13 times in the past 17 years. The competition focuses on promotion of careers in management accounting/financial management and encourages chapters to be creative in providing programs for their members. The judging criteria is divided into three areas: planning and evaluation, programs and activities and administrative. Outstanding chapters are selected based upon completing all elements of the program and demonstrating they have promoted IMA membership and student programs.

Huber, a senior accountancy and finance major from Quincy, Ill., was one of 10 students recognized from across the nation. She will receive a $1,000 scholarship. Students applying for the award must also submit two faculty recommendations to support the nomination. After receiving the award, students must turn in an official transcript from the spring 2020 semester.

A ceremony to recognize the IMA award winners was scheduled during the IMA Student Leadership Conference in Pittsburgh on Nov. 12-14, but the ceremony was cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, a virtual conference will be held on Nov. 13.

Dr. Dell Ann Janney, associate dean of experiential education and external relations, also is the advisor for the IMA student chapter at Culver-Stockton.

IMA student chapters are dedicated to connecting accounting, finance and business students on college campuses.
