Miranda (pictured below) is now working full-time at Friesen, Pankratz, & Associates and is completing some CPA preparatory courses before starting the Professional Education Program next summer. While attending TWU, she was the Merchandise Coordinator for the Trinity Refugee Awareness Campaign and was the Upperclassmen Representative for her dorm.
In addition to these CPAEF Awards, the foundation also supports a matching award with the Fraser Valley CPA Association. The recipient of that award was Kaleb Denham.
Congratulations Gabby, Kathleen, Miranda and Kaleb. Good luck with your future careers as professional accountants.
