Gary N. Giles, professor of business at Southern Utah University, has been named the 1991 Outstanding Educator by the Utah Association of Certified Public Accountants.

Anne Sims, association spokeswoman, said one person from each college and university in Utah is nominated for the annual award, and then a committee selects the outstanding educator. Giles is the first person from SUU to receive the award, which will be presented to him at the association's annual awards luncheon June 14, in Salt Lake City.
