NEW YORK, NY, MAY 10, 2012 -- Daniel J. Busby, CPA of Atlanta, Georgia, a member of the Assurance Services team at Ernst & Young LLP in Atlanta, received the Charles Waldo Haskins Gold Award for earning the highest score on the CPA exam in New York from the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants (NYSSCPA).

Joshua J. Eikenberry of Brooklyn, a tax associate at McGladrey & Pullen LLP in New York City, earned the Charles Waldo Haskins Silver Award for the second highest exam score in New York.   These awards were presented at the Annual Election Dinner and Meeting of the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants on May 10th at the New York Marriott Marquis at Times Square.
 
“The Charles Waldo Haskins Memorial Award recognizes two individuals each year who earn the highest and second highest scores on the uniform CPA examination in New York state,” said NYSSCPA Executive Director Joanne S. Barry at the awards ceremony. “It’s this type of achievement by two of our promising future CPAs that we believe would make our founding president very, very proud.”
 
Charles Waldo Haskins was the first NYSSCPA president and a fierce advocate for establishing the CPA as a licensed professional in New York State (the first state to do so) and later the establishment of the CPA exam. 
 
Busby received his bachelor of science degree in accounting and finance from Syracuse University and his master of accountancy from the University of Georgia.  Eikenberry has a bachelor’s degree in music and theatre from St. Olaf College, a master’s degree in acting from Wayne State University and a master’s degree in accounting from Pace University.
