B-02.04 Yorkston Corporation was formed in 1961. The company came into existence concurrent with the beginning of construction of super highways throughout the country. It seems the company's founders had innovated a unique process of applying high-gloss luminescent paint to street signs, and these were in high demand for the new high- speed roadways. The company has gone on to develop a full line of highway safety products. Yorkston is now in the process of building a company museum. Someone has dug up the first page from the company's original general journal. This page will be on display in the museum. When you examine this page, you will note that the bookkeeper simply recorded the debits and credits, but included no descriptions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
