Jun 01, 2007 | Posted in News

ERIE, Pa. – John H. Guelcher, CPA, MBA, received a Joseph E. Sterrett Fellow Award from the Erie Chapter of Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA).

Guelcher, who was honored at a reception at the Kahkwa Club on May 3rd, is a past president of PICPA's Erie Chapter and widely considered a leader in corporate and community-service circles in the Erie area. In addition to the award recognition, a donation of $1,000 will be made in his name to the PICPA Scholarship Fund.

Sterrett was a PICPA founder and, in 1904, the organization's first president. Sterrett saw accounting as “pre-eminently the profession of business advice” and the accountant as a person who “is thoroughly conversant with the principles” underlying a successful company and who “has accumulated a large fund of information in…business policy.”

Honorees of the award, which bears his name, are individuals who have made significant contributions to PICPA and the CPA profession.
