Outstanding Ohio Accounting Educator Award.
Stout is the John S. & Doris M. Andrews chair of accounting in the Williamson College of Business Administration at Youngstown State University (YSU), where he is a tenured professor and teaches courses in cost accounting and managerial accounting. He has been an accounting educator for 28 years, teaching in public and private institutions at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
"At the end of each course I teach, I thank my students for giving me an opportunity to be part of their education and professional growth," Stout said. "Through my interaction with students I am able to have a direct and substantive impact on the lives of young people--I celebrate this opportunity."
During his time at YSU, Stout has been instrumental in revising and enhancing the undergraduate cost accounting course and the MBA managerial accounting course. He continually recruits students to the accounting major, and has effectively helped many to secure positions with various firms and organizations. His student evaluations of teaching effectiveness have always been positive and near the top in the accounting and finance department.
"It is rare to find a faculty member who is an exceptional teacher, researcher, organizational contributor and leader in the profession. He has distinguished himself through his excellence in teaching, commitment to his students' development and service to the profession," said Betty Jo Licata, dean of the Williamson College of Business Administration at YSU.
Stout has made enduring contributions to professional organizations, such as the Institute of Management Accountants, which named him the recipient of the national 2007 R. Lee Brummet Award based on his distinguished teaching career and service to the accounting profession. He has been highly involved with AAA, and recently accepted the office of president-elect for the AAA Ohio Region. He is also a member of the Decision Sciences Institute, the Federation of Schools of Accountancy and the Academy of Business Education, to name a few.
He has published more than 70 academic journal articles and is a member of the editorial review boards for five journals, including Issues in Accounting Education, Journal of International Accounting Auditing and Taxation, and Strategic Finance/Management Accounting Quarterly. In addition, he recently co-authored a 920-page book titled Cost Management: A Strategic Emphasis, which was published by McGraw Hill/Irwin.
"An award such as this is possible only if one has diligent, hard-working students, trusted colleagues and a supportive institutional environment. I apply effort and determination, but these three factors are critical to a successful career as a professor," Stout said.
The Outstanding Ohio Accounting Educator award is presented each year to an accounting educator who has made extraordinary contributions to the accounting profession and whose teaching skills and techniques merit special recognition. The award is co-sponsored by The Ohio Society of CPAs and the American Accounting Association Ohio Region.
