Kevin Price, Director of Human Resources at Brigham Young University-Idaho, Receives CUPA-HR’s Distinguished Service Award

Kevin Price, director of human resources at Brigham Young University-Idaho, has received the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR) 2015 Distinguished Service Award. This award is given to a CUPA-HR member who has provided outstanding service to the association through constituent activities, such as service in governance or leadership roles, or through professional development contributions in support of the association. Thanks to the generous support of Kronos, CUPA-HR is pleased to offer a $2,000 contribution to BYU-Idaho’s endowment or a scholarship fund of Price’s choice.

Price’s many contributions to CUPA-HR stretch over more than 10 years. He began his leadership service to the association in 2004, when he served as president of the CUPA-HR Utah Chapter. In 2007, he served as president of the Wyoming Chapter. He then went on to serve for six years on the CUPA-HR Western Region board of directors, including a term as chair and two terms as treasurer, and for five years on the national board of directors. Price has also served on several CUPA-HR committees and task forces over a number of years, including the learning and professional development committee, the budget and finance committee, the mentoring task force and the national awards committee.

“Kevin’s record of leadership and service within CUPA-HR is very impressive,” says former CUPA-HR board chair Mark Coldren, who nominated Price for the award. “Countless CUPA-HR members can share stories of how he continues to have an impact on their professional and personal lives, which proves that his contributions and presence in CUPA-HR have provided a lasting and meaningful impact.”
