Below is an excerpt from the Fall 2015 edition featuring the newest OIA intern, Shannon Runger.
Audit Intern“I think the greatest thing about this internship is the inclusion of the intern in the various audits that are being handled by the office. I feel like I will get a wellrounded understanding of internal audit through this experience.” – Shannon Runger

Shannon Runger became interested in the internship after attending a student luncheon at the Office of Internal Audit. There she learned that auditing encompassed more than the stereotypical idea of searching for fraud. She became increasingly interested while attending a course taught by Prof. Steve Loflin, who has a background in audit and frequently incorporates audit policies and procedures into his accounting lectures.

Through the internship, Runger hopes to gain a better understanding of the role and benefit of internal audit for the university and health system. She was delighted to have the opportunity in May to job shadow Anthony Wagner, the executive vice president of administration and finance for Georgia Regents University, and had a chance to see how the various systems work together to achieve a common goal. The experience opened her eyes to the many employment opportunities offered by GRU.

Runger is originally from Iowa, but an enlistment with the Air Force and a position at Fort Gordon brought her to Augusta in 2005. After an eight-year military career, she decided to pursue a degree in accounting and enrolled at Augusta State University. She saw the university through the consolidation into GRU and has been impressed with the degree of professionalism and aid to students that the Hull College of Business provides. She intends to continue her studies through a master’s degree program and hopes to obtain multiple professional certifications.
