by Alan Hunt
The Texas Society of CPAs has selected Baylor University professor Dr. Jane N. Baldwin as its 1999 Accounting Educator of the Year in Texas for mid-size universities. She received the honor during the society's annual seminar on accounting education.
The award recognizes excellence in classroom teaching and contributions to the accounting profession through involvement in professional and student accounting organizations.
Baldwin, who joined the Baylor faculty in 1981, serves as an associate professor of accounting. She received a bachelor of science degree from Arkansas Technical University, a master's of business administration degree from Baylor, and a doctorate from the University of Arkansas. She is currently teaching at Ouachita Baptist University, Arkadelphia, Ark., during a three-semester leave of absence from Baylor.
Dr. Danny P. Hollingsworth, professor and chair of Baylor's department of accounting and business law, said Baldwin's motivation and love of teaching, along with her active involvement in the accounting profession, made her a natural choice for the society's award.
