Feb. 15, 2000
An Abilene Christian University professor and graduate
student won the national "1999 Best Case Award" by
McGraw-Hill on behalf of the Society for Case Research.
Jozell Brister, associate professor of economics, and
Kevin Nelson, a graduate student in the Master of
Accountancy program, wrote the case.
The case, the first collaboration by Brister and Nelson,
was selected from among 40 cases submitted to the society
based on careful research and case writing.
The case, titled "Restructuring the Hometown Utility:
The West Texas Utility Company," explores the impact of
merger, downsizing and deregulation on WTU.
The award will be given in Chicago in March.
"This prestigious, national honor highlights Jozell and
Kevin's careful research and case writing," said Dr. Monty
Lynn, chair of the Management Sciences Department. "Even
more exciting is the fact that this is their first case, it
was selected from 40 cases submitted to the society and it
came about through ACU faculty-student collaboration."
