Wolitzer Enters Hall Of Fame...

Phil Wolitzer is an accounting institution – he is professor emeritus in the Brooklyn Campus accounting department, which he has served for more than 50 years, including 20 years as department chair. He has been a financial consultant to many businesses and an officer of many faculty organizations. He also started the Internship Program for Accounting Students, providing experiential education to many generations of students. Not surprisingly, the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants already has honored him with its Outstanding CPA in Education Award.

Now, at a gala dinner on May 15, the NYSSCPA will present Wolitzer with its 2002-2003 Hall of Fame Award. “The recognition by your peers is a reflection of the prominence you have attained in your professional career,” the society said in announcing the honor.

“Being named to the society’s Hall of Fame is especially gratifying to me inasmuch as it is an honor conferred by my peers,” says Wolitzer, adding, “Since the award was established in 1896, only 15 people have been inducted, almost all of them posthumously. I’m the second living person to be so honored.”
