About Dr. Harris
Dr. Grant A. Harris served as chairman of the Washington State University Department of Forestry and Range Management from 1967-1980, and as Chairman of the Board here at Decagon from 1983 until 2005 . Listing his awards, honors, and memberships would make an impressive paragraph, but to those who knew him, his personal merits outshone all his professional honors. He was a born mentor, and shared his time and resources freely with students and colleagues alike. This fellowship commemorates his generosity of heart and spirit.
