Alan Lord, the Ernst & Young professor of accounting at Bowling Green State University, will spend five months next year as a Fulbright Scholar at the Bucharest Academy of Economic Studies in Romania.

From mid-January to mid-June, he will work on curriculum development at the academy, which plans to adopt a global model curriculum for information systems auditing and control. A model curriculum, published in 2004, was developed by the task force chaired by the professor for the Information Systems Auditing and Control Association.

The director of BGSU's master of accountancy program will also teach research techniques to doctoral students, and give lectures on international financial accounting issues to both graduate and undergraduate students at the academy.

The Fulbright program is sponsored by the U.S. State Department to promote mutual understanding between Americans and people in other countries.

The Ottawa Hills Elementary School team, the "Future Kids," competed at the Destination Imagination Global Finals event at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville from May 21 to 24.

The team ranked 15th out of 70 worldwide teams in its category and ranked first in the instant challenge portion of its competition. The "Future Kids" team included Greg Gaillardetz, Gracey Gibson, Robby Gilmore, Nick Hauck, Lilly Petro, Dan Reilly, and Evan Williams.

The event drew more than 19,000 people overall, with teams from the U.S. and 18 other countries in competition at the four-day international creative problem-solving tournament.
