For Immediate Release
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."
