Professor a “Super CPA”

R. Leigh Frackelton

For the second time in three years, R. Leigh Frackelton, UMW College of Business professor, was recognized as a “Super CPA” educator by his peers in Virginia. Each year, Virginia Business Magazine and the Virginia Society of Certified Public Accountants recognize the state’s top CPAs for important contributions to the profession and the Commonwealth. All Virginia CPAs receive electronic ballots on which they identify the peers they deem to be the best in select areas of their profession. Frackelton, an attorney and certified public accountant, was one of nine educators selected.

Frackelton’s areas of expertise include federal income tax, accounting, and business law. He holds a J.D. from the T.C. Williams School of Law at the University of Richmond. He is a member of the Virginia Society of CPAs and the Virginia State Bar.
