Kyle Hawk Receiving Lifetime Achievement Award
On November 16, 2011, Swindoll, Janzen, Hawk & Loyd's managing partner Kyle Hawk, CPA, CMAP, was honored for his contributions as a leader in the accounting profession and the Kansas Society of Certified Public Accountants (KSCPA). At the KSCPA annual meeting Kyle received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the KSCPA, presented to him by the outgoing Chairman John Bruckner. In the history of the KSCPA, they have only given out three of these awards.

The KSCPA is the professional member organization for Kansas CPAs. The Society was founded on October 17, 1932. KSCPA continues to thrive today, adapting over the past 79 years, but always centered with a common vision, core values and strategic objectives.

Kyle has been highly involved with the KSCPA throughout his career. He was chair of the KSCPA from 2006-2007, was the elected AICPA Council representative for the KSCPA from 2008-2011 and is currently a trustee for the KSCPA Educational Foundation. He believes his membership in the KSCPA has created long-term friendships within the profession, knowledge of daily issues, quality representation in front of legislative bodies, networking opportunities and the ability to give back to the profession that has been so good to him.

In addition to the positions listed above, Kyle has also served on the KSCPA board of directors, executive committee, nominations committee (and as chair) and on other numerous task forces. He also served on the board and as president of the Central Chapter of the KSCPA. Kyle became a member of the organization in 1987 and became a partner at SJHL three years later in 1990.

Kyle is also active in the community and other professional associations. Locally, Kyle is the treasurer and past president of the McPherson Industrial Development Co. (MIDC); a member of the McPherson Optimists Club and a member of the United Methodist Church. He also served on the board and as treasurer of the McPherson Chamber of Commerce.

Please help the SJHL staff in congratulating Kyle on this great achievement!
