The Phillip H. Grogg Award was established in 1983 in memory of Phil Grogg, a student manager of KCFV who died as a result of injuries sustained in an automobile accident in the fall of 1982. His mother, Norma, sent Phil's un-cashed paychecks back to the college requesting that the funds be used to acquire something for the radio station. Dr. David Harris, the president of the college at that time instead used the funds to start this award to recognize an outstanding student who demonstrates excellence in the areas of broadcasting skills and leadership. Currently, the Grogg recipient receives a trophy, a $500 scholarship and his or her name is engraved on a permanent plaque on display in the station.
Each year students involved in the station are asked to nominate the KCFV'er they feel best exemplifies the award. The faculty advisor and station manager then reviews the nominees and selects three finalists. From these finalists, the winner is then selected and is revealed in a ceremony held in the spring. The two finalists not receiving the award are given plaques and a $100 scholarship for their recognition.
