On November 15th, Bowman & Company LLP's Senior Manager Maryann Holloway visited Deptford Township High School to speak with the next generation of potential accountants.
As a member of the New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants (NJCPA), Maryann is encouraged to connect with youth and the community in order to propel individuals into accounting scholarship and aid in their journey towards a career. But her dedication runs deeper than any organizational obligation:
"They say you can never go back to high school but when it comes to paying it forward, I choose to go back to my alma mater every year. Being a CPA has been a rewarding profession for me and if I can help today’s students with their career choices, I choose to pay it forward. Since Bowman & Company supports giving back, it is easy for me to return to Deptford Township High School each year." - Maryann Holloway
Maryann has been visiting Deptford Township High School since 2003. In addition to shedding light on the NJCPA's CPA Career Awareness program, her presentation explored the intricacies of becoming a CPA. From the schooling and testing required to the job security and mobility allotted, Maryann ensured that students left knowing exactly what becoming an accountant entails.
