ASHBURN, Virginia — December 17, 2018
BAS Accounting Services CPA Partner, Karen Crosswhite, was honored this week by George Mason University as the first recipient of the university’s School of Business Shrivastava GovCon Scholarship for the 2018-2019 academic year.
The scholarship was established in memory of S.P. ‘Shri’ Shrivastava, to provide support to emerging entrepreneurs who have made service to the country a priority of their corporate mission.
Karen Crosswhite is the co-founder and lead CPA Partner at BAS Accounting Services and is actively involved with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the Virginia Society of Certified Public Accountants (VSCPA).
Having spent more than a decade in the accounting and finance profession, Karen sought out George Mason University's master’s program as a means of expanding upon her prior knowledge in the field of accounting and business. The coursework in the program also fulfills the continuing professional education credits (CPE) mandated by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) in order for CPAs to maintain their license.
According to Karen, “It’s important for anyone in the field of accountancy to continually reinforce and expand their knowledge and skills pertaining to new advances, regulations and overall spectrum of finance, accounting, and taxation."
“As owner and lead CPA Partner of BAS Accounting Services, our firm's partners and I recognize that our clients continually rely on the aid of accounting experts with knowledge of current accounting standards, practices, codes, and regulations,” she says.
GMU’s Accounting Master’s Program provides advanced learning opportunities from experts in our field, as well as professionals with experience in tangential fields, such as forensic federal investigation, who are able to infuse the program’s curriculum with real world experience.
