Josue Castro Lopez, Jr., who earned a Bachelor’s in Business Administration from the University of Oklahoma, received a Silver Medal award for the highest scores over windows I and II of the CPA exam. He currently works for Deloitte in Oklahoma City.

Additionally, Hannah Kamphuis, a provisional member of the OSCPA, earned a Silver Medal award for the highest scores on windows III and IV of the CPA exam. Kamphuis, who also earned a Bachelor’s in Business Administration, is a tax associate with BKD CPAs & Advisors in Oklahoma City.  

In addition to education and experience requirements, the CPA exam plays a crucial role ensuring individuals who earn a CPA license have the skills and knowledge required to protect the public interest in a complex and ever-changing financial environment.

“As one of the most demanding professional exams, the CPA exam requires enormous commitment and dedication,” said OSCPA President and CEO, Blaine Peterson, CPA, JD. “On behalf of the OSCPA, I congratulate the winners on their exceptional accomplishment and look forward to their successful careers in the CPA profession.”
