The Mile High Chapter of AITP established the Harold M. Pool Recognition Award, previously known as the Harold M. Pool Memorial Scholarship, in memory of its first president and long time mentor. The chapter was founded in 1952 and Harold was an active member until his death in February, 2001.
To be eligible to receive an award, candidates must be national AITP student members. The students must be either members of a Mile High Chapter-sponsored AITP student chapter, or individual members enrolled in a Colorado college or university if an official AITP student chapter does not exist at their school. Each must be nominated by their AITP student chapter advisor or, in the case of individual members, by a member of the Mile High Chapter.
The following Colorado schools are currently affiliated with the Chapter and have AITP student chapters:
- Colorado Mesa University – CMU (formerly Mesa State College – MSC), Grand Junction
- Metropolitan State University of Denver – MSU of Denver (formerly Metropolitan State College of Denver – MSCD)
- National American University of Rapid City, SD – NAU
- Westwood College Denver South Campus, Denver, CO – WC-DSC
The goal of the award is to encourage those students whom the Chapter believes will continue Harold’s legacy. These students are typically active in AITP, have a propensity for mentoring others, and obviously care about the success of others. Nominations are solicited and accepted in the spring.
