Fil-Am high school graduate excels in accounting tournament

AZUSA, CA — You can count on Krisna Floriano to be a winner.
Last month, the Azusa High School Graduate capped off his senior year of high school by winning the NAF and American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ “Bank On It” tournament.
It’s a national tournament where high school students compete in accounting and running businesses, managing virtual funds.
“Everyones saying to go into accounting or the mathematics field, so I might I might pursue it. I was very into scene and computers so I always around that area…”
This week Floriano, whose father is renowned artist Sal Floriano, hails from Taguig, and was honored by his hometown of Azusa.

The family, and his teacher joined the festivities at city halls.

While the soft-spoken teen talked was calm about describing the competition, his mom recalls it differently.

While some of the prizes included gadgets, many of the country’s top firms were also there looking to recruit talent.

“Some companies were offering me paid internships and job offers when I was over there at the competition area, but for Citrus College I’ll just be taking my general ed and then planning to transfer to a four-year afterwards.”

For now, the accounting champion will calmly head off to nearby Citrus Community College, where he’ll begin classes next week.
