Peru State College is pleased to announce that Cassandra Weitzenkamp was named to the Nebraska Board of Public Accountancy Educational Advisory Committee.  Weitzenkamp is currently an instructor of accounting courses in the School of Professional Studies.

Weitzenkamp was named to the advisory committee in late November under the Public Accountancy Act.  The appointment was made by Nebraska Board of Public Accountancy (NBPA) members who were in turn appointed by the Governor of Nebraska.

The Educational Advisory Committee (EAC) meets at the discretion of the Nebraska Board of Public Accountancy.  The advisory committee consists of educators focused on the field of accounting.

Weitzenkamp explains that the EAC sets educational standards for students that are seeking to sit for the Certified Public Account (CPA) exam.  She looks forwarding to serving as a voice for Peru State College, accounting educators and CPASs throughout Nebraska.

Greg Galardi, Dean of Professional Studies, said, “This is a critical committee as it allows educational institutions equal voice in the accounting standards set forth by the NBPA.”

“We appreciate Cassandra’s efforts statewide and her dedication to the college and our communities.”

Weitzenkamp received her bachelors in Business Administration and a Masters of Professional Accountancy from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  She is also a Certified Public Accountant (CPA).
