Kishwaukee College has been awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association of the U.S. and Canada for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report for Fiscal Year 2012.

The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment.

Beth Young, Dean of Business Affairs, was cited as the individual primarily responsible for preparing the CAFR under the supervision of Rob Galick, vice president for Administration and Finance. The CAFR was judged by an impartial panel as meeting the high standards of GFOA including demonstrating a “spirit of full-disclosure” to clearly communicate the college’s financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR.

GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving approximately 17,500 government finance professionals with offices in Chicago and Washington, D.C.
