Valerie Simmons recognized
The School of Accountancy honored Valerie Simmons for her many years of service to Beta Alpha Psi (BAP). We are so thankful for her commitment, dedication, and leadership. In line with the philosophy of Joe Paul, she certainly left the BAP chapter better than she found it, and we are sincerely grateful for her exemplary service to the School and, most importantly, for the many students’ lives that she touched during her tenure as BAP Faculty Advisor!
