Jenkins County High School students Marah Johnson, Danielle Dieteman, Marvell Drummer, Michael Fryson, Megan Lane and Brook Hillis have been recommended to participate in a three-day residency program at either Georgia Southern University or University of Georgia to learn more about the accounting profession.

This program is sponsored by the Georgia Society of Certified Public Accountants (GSCPS) and is dedicated to informing students about the wide variety of career opportunities in accounting and encouraging an accounting interest among students.

To accomplish this, the GSCPA sponsors several high school students each year to participate in the three-day program.

Each program will give a hands-on experience with accounting issues and present speakers with variety experiences in the accounting profession. Past speakers included representatives of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the University of Georgia accounting program, national and local accounting firms and public companies like Coca-Cola and Georgia Pacific. Students will have the opportunity to experience college life by staying in a dorm, eating in the cafeteria and attending classes on campus.
