The School of Management has been honoring business leaders since 1977. Recipients
of the award are selected by a committee of UAF School of Management students, faculty,
advisory board members and former recipients based on merits of leadership, business
accomplishments, community involvement and educational support.
This event is unique in that students play a major role in the planning and attendance.
In its history, the award has been awarded to three couples, two brothers, a father
and son 35 years apart, and a father and son at the same time.
