The Burton D. Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship Award recognizes achievement and creativity in the field of entrepreneurship and is one of several Krannert Awards presented annually to the school's top alumni and supporters. The Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship is a resource to help students and faculty of Purdue University and residents of the state pursue their entrepreneurial ambitions.
Schalliol has supported the Krannert School in a number of ways, including currently serving on the Burton D. Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship Advisory Council and the Purdue Research Foundation's board of directors.
The Krannert School will present the entrepreneurship award to Schalliol at the school's 11th annual Leadership Speakers Series event on Oct. 20 at 6:30 p.m. in the Purdue Memorial Union ballroom. Doris Kearns Goodwin, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, historian and TV commentator, will give the keynote address. Gerald J. Lynch, interim dean of the Krannert School, and Timothy Sands, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost, will also speak at the event.

Before joining Baker & Daniels, he was director of the Indiana Office of Management and Budget and chief financial officer for the State of Indiana under Gov. Mitch Daniels. Schalliol previously served as the first president and CEO of BioCrossroads, in several executive level positions at Eli Lilly and Company and in senior operating positions with IVAC Corporation.
