College students win top spots

Two business administration accounting students can boast of being the best in the country

Two Okanagan College Bachelor of Business Administration accounting students can boast of being the best in the country after claiming top spot at a prestigious international business competition.

Jessica Lenz and Daniel Yarmak, respectively third- and fourth-year business students, competed in the accounting category at Queen’s University Inter-Collegiate Business Competition (ICBC).

The pair reached the finals by beating out 31 other teams. In the final round they outshone competitors from five universities to take first place.

“It is rewarding to have received top honours after so many months of hard work,” said Yarmak.
