Bridgewater professor receives “Top 5 Under 35” award

For her professional achievements and community contributions, Holly C. Ratwani, an associate professor of business administration at Bridgewater College, was awarded a “Top 5 Under 35” recognition from Disclosures, the bi-monthly magazine of the Virginia Society of Certified Professional Accountants (VSCPA).

The recognition is annually awarded to five CPAs under the age of 35 who have excelled in one or more of the following categories: professional achievement, VSCPA accomplishment, community contributions and/or dedication to the CPA profession. Ratwani, who was cited for her outstanding leadership and advancement in the field of accounting, as well as for her support of the community, will be showcased in a special section of the July/August issue of Disclosures.

“I was very honored to receive such an award by the VSCPA,” said Ratwani, who lives in Fishersville. “It is only through the encouragement of family that I have been able to advance in the field of accounting and be a source of encouragement to others. I love teaching my students at Bridgewater College and assisting them with job placement prior to graduation. I can’t imagine doing anything else.”

Ratwani is a 1999 graduate of Bridgewater College who earned her master of accountancy degree in taxation from Virginia Tech. She received her MBA from University of Maryland University College. She was licensed as a CPA by the Virginia Board of Accountancy in 2005 and began teaching at Bridgewater College in 2002.

Bridgewater College is a private, four-year liberal arts college located in the Central Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Founded in 1880, it was the state’s first private, coeducational college. Today, Bridgewater College is home to approximately 1,700 undergraduate students.
