Beta Alpha Psi Professional Partner and McGladrey Talent Acquisition Manager, Kim McLaughlin said, “This award can only serve as a starting point to show the appreciation these faculty advisors deserve. Many of them work tirelessly to make sure their chapters are successful and their members are receiving the benefits they need to become well-rounded professionals.” 

The award recognizes faculty advisors who make substantial contributions to the professional growth and development of business financial information students.  In addition to her teaching and research, Dr. Esmond-Kiger worked many additional hours to be present at various Beta Alpha Psi meetings, community service activities, firm receptions, member initiations, and planning meetings with chapter officers.  Dr. Esmond-Kiger teaches in the School of Accountancy in the OHIO College of Business.  In addition to a long list of awards and accomplishments, Dr. Esmond-Kiger is the author and co-author of numerous textbooks and academic writings.          

Dr. E. Ann Gabriel, Director of the School of Accountancy, said “we are happy for Connie’s well deserved recognition, and are proud to have such an outstanding person as a faculty member in the School of Accountancy and College of Business.  She is a dedicated advocate for her students and an example to us all.”
