The award recognizes Price's contributions to higher education in Texas. The award is the TASSCUBO's highest honor and has been awarded only 14 times since the organization was formed in 1968. Previous recipients include a former state senator, a former chair of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, two commissioners of higher education and several presidents and chief financial officers of Texas institutions.
Price earned his bachelor of business administration degree in accounting in 1953 and his master of business administration degree in 1961 from Texas Tech University. He became a certified public accountant in 1955. Price has served in numerous administrative and business affairs capacities at the Health Science Center since 1972. He currently is the university's vice president for governmental relations.
The mission of the TASSCUBO is to contribute to the advancement of higher education in its fullest and broadest implications, and specifically to the professional advancement of the financial and business affairs functions, which exist in the state-supported senior colleges and universities in Texas.
