The award was established in the memory of Harold Grilliot, a gifted Accounting faculty member who was well known as an excellent teacher, mentor and friend to students throughout his career. He was faculty advisor of Alpha Kappa Psi and was always available and willing to help students with problems and career decisions. This award was established in his memory following the untimely death of Professor Grilliot in 1984 and serves to highlight the importance of service to our students.
