PEWAUKEE, Wis. (Thursday, July 18, 2019) – Waukesha County Technical College has been awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) of the United States for its comprehensive and annual financial report (CAFR).

This certificate of achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment reflects a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.

“The award recognizes Waukesha County Technical College as a leader in quality financial reporting and validates the efforts of the Financial Accounting Services team to properly report the financial health of the College,” said Kristine Golz, WCTC controller.
