Introducing Karen Jenks-Scrougham, Beacon of Hope’s controller. Karen has a Bachelor’s degrees in Mathematics and Accounting from Purdue and Marion University. Along with her Bachelor’s degrees, she holds a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix.
As the controller, Karen manages our finances at Beacon of Hope. From payroll to bills, Karen is our go-to for finance or even math related questions. It’s easy to say that Karen is the perfect addition to our team and helps out in so many ways.
Her favorite resource at Beacon of Hope is the fact that we have advocates that are constantly communicating with those in need. Seeing people receiving help in hard times and having someone to lean on is a tremendous help for victims and allows them to receive the help they deserve.
A fun fact about Karen is that she adopted her son, now 20, from China in 2002. He currently studies at Ball State! #chirpchirp
