He left behind a legacy of professionalism and integrity that set new standards in the field of insurance services. In his honor two students who best demonstrate strong interest in practice and risk management will each receive a $5,000 award.

The recipient will be selected by a sub-committee of AIA members serving on the Practice Management Knowledge Community Leadership Group and a representative from the a/e ProNet organization. Applications and supporting material become the property of the American Institute of Architects.
