Carignan Awarded ASBO Scholarship for School Business Leadership

We are pleased to announce that Clarkston Community Schools Accounting Supervisor Heather Carignan was recently awarded a 2018 Emerging School Business Leaders Scholarship from The Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO). The scholarship awards exceptional, up-and-coming school business managers with $2,000 to attend ASBO International's Annual Meeting & Expo.

ASBO International's Annual Meeting is the premier professional development event for school business officials. The conference provides attendees education sessions, workshops, and seminars on school business issues and offers invaluable networking opportunities. The 2018 Annual Meeting & Expo will take place September 21–24, in Kissimmee, Florida.

"The Emerging School Business Leaders Scholarship opens the path for district officials who are seeking professional development and a network of mentors to guide them in their careers," says ASBO International Executive Director John Musso, CAE, RSBA.

Heather Carignan has been with Clarkston Community Schools since 2014. Prior to joining the district, she was a Certified Public Accountant at Shindel, Rock, and Associates.

"I'm honored to be selected by ASBO International as an emerging school business leader," said Carignan. "I can't wait to further my professional knowledge, expand my network, and bring some great ideas back to Clarkston."
