HATTIESBURG - Dr. Stan Clark, professor in The University of Southern Mississippi School of Accountancy and Information Systems, has received the Jerold J. Morgan Distinguished Professorship.

The two-year appointment begins immediately and carries a stipend of approximately $12,500 a year. The $250,000 endowment honoring its namesake was established by the Jerold J. Morgan Foundation in 1994 and is administered by the Southern Miss Foundation.

It is intended to give Southern Miss faculty members a chance to advance professional research and service efforts. Stipulations free the recipient from summer full-time teaching assignments to provide an uninterrupted time for research and service projects.

Clark received his doctorate in accounting from the University of Kentucky. He has a master's of professional accountancy and a bachelor's degree in accounting, both from Southern Miss.

Clark's primary teaching areas are financial accounting and individual income taxes. He has published articles in Journal of Accountancy, Ohio CPA Journal, Journal of Corporate Accounting and Finance, and Strategic Finance, among others.

An active supporter of continuing professional education, Clark has developed and taught numerous courses for the Mississippi Society of CPAs, the Mississippi Association of Public Accountants and other local CPA firms. In 1998, he was recognized as the Outstanding CPE Instructor by the Mississippi Society of CPAs.

Clark's papers have garnered a Certificate of Merit from the Institute of Management Accountants, and have twice won outstanding manuscript awards at the annual meeting of the Academy of Accounting and Financial Studies. In 2000, he won the Southern Miss Excellence in Teaching Award.

The professorship is named in honor of Dr. Jerold J. Morgan, who retired from the Southern Miss faculty in July 1992 after 23 years of service that included serving as the first director of the School of Accountancy, and being named Distinguished Professor in 1986 and educator of the Year in 1990. He died in 1994.
