The Connecticut Society of Certified Public Accountants recently presented Alan DelFavero, adjunct professor of accounting, with an “Educator of Excellence” award at the organization’s second annual Educators of Excellence awards night, known as “The Eddys.” The event was held at Cascade in Hamden with John Turgeon, CPA, of CohnReznick serving as master of ceremonies. DelFavero, of Monroe, won in the adjunct professor category. In his nomination, he was called “one of the most well-liked professors on campus.”
The CTCPA created The Eddys to recognize Connecticut accounting professors who have had a positive influence on the lives and careers of their students by exceling in teaching, mentoring and inspiring them. Students nominate outstanding professors, and winners are selected by a panel representing a cross-section of the CTCPA membership and the Connecticut business community via blind review.
